|How to Ride the Bus in SLO County|
Your travels from Downtown San Luis Obispo all start at the Downtown Transit Center, near the Old County Government Center at Osos Street & Palm Street. Make convenient connections with the City of San Luis Obispo (SLO Transit) buses diagonally across the street.

All RTA and SCAT buses can accommodate bicycles and are wheelchair accessible.
