General Manager’s Message
“Looking forward, we will continue to innovate with new services that will streamline travel throughout the region, more zero emission buses, and continue planning the SURF! Busway and Bus Rapid Transit project.”
2021. Another big year with new challenges and new opportunities. Team MST rose to the challenges finding innovative ways to keep our workforce, our customers, and their families safe all while implementing mobility services and new projects to restore our local economy, promote social equity, and protect our environment.
With summer came reopening, and a big welcome back to our community and visitors celebrating a first-of-its-kind contactless payment system, new zero-emission buses, and by using federal COVID-19 funds, the return of the ever-popular MST Trolley Monterey. We closed out the year by completing the construction and starting operations from our new division in King City.
We capitalized on opportunities to promote and incentivize COVID-19 vaccines to our customers and employees. Virtually 100% of MST’s frontline employees were compliant with the adopted MST vaccination mandate policy by years end, and over one thousand free rides were provided to MST customers just for providing proof of vaccination.
For 2022, the future is bright and only getting better. Looking forward, we will continue to innovate with new services that will streamline travel throughout the region, more zero emission buses, and continue planning the SURF! Busway and Bus Rapid Transit project.
