******* RIDER’S ALERT *******

On July 1, 2018 Transit Riders are
Required to Wear Seat Belts When Available

On October 8, 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law “SB20 (Hill): Vehicles: buses: seatbelts.” Senator Hill created the legislation to bridge the gap between the regulations of the Federal Transportation Administration and the State of California regarding the use of seat belts on public transit buses. The law goes into effect on July 1, 2018.

The new law includes fines for riders who do not wear seatbelts on buses that are equipped with seat belts. Law enforcement agencies can issue citations to passengers who are not wearing their seat belts. The fine for the first offense is $20; fines increase to $50 for subsequent offenses. The law applies to:

  • Passengers over the age of 16 who fail to wear a seat belt in vehicles equipped with seat belts.
  • Passengers responsible for children under the age 16 for failing to secure the children in buses equipped with seat belts.


In addition, the City of Lodi, as a public transportation provider, may be fined for the following:

  • Bus drivers who fail to wear a seat belt.
  • Failure to maintain the seat belts in proper working order.


Provisions of the new law include the following (which only apply to vehicles equipped with safety belts):

  1. No violation point counts will be given for failure to wear the seat belt.
  2. A passenger who is 16 years of age or older is required to wear seat belt.
  3. A child 8 years of age or older, but less than 16 years of age, shall not be transported on a bus, unless he or she is properly restrained by a seat belt.
  4. A child under 8 years of age and less than 4 feet 9 inches in height shall not be transported on a bus, unless he or she is properly restrained in a child restraint seat. A child under the age of 2 may be held in the lap.


Effective July 1, 2018, you will see signs in various locations on this bus informing you of the new law and the requirement to wear a seat belt.  If you have any questions regarding this change, please contact Georgia Lantsberger, Transportation Manager at (209) 333-6800, ext. 2667.

Unmet Transit Needs

As the administrator of Transportation Development Act (TDA) funds for the region, San Joaquin Council of Governments (SJCOG) is charged with performing the Unmet Transit Needs (UTN) process, and City of Lodi GrapeLine participates in this process.

The purpose of the UTN process is to ensure that all unmet transit needs that are "reasonable to meet" are met before funds are expended for non-transit uses, such as streets and roads projects.

For information about the UTN process or to complete a survey, please go to the following website:
