Groundbreaking of Farmersville’s first Transit Center!

Posted on July 31, 2023

On Friday, July 21st, the City of Farmersville and Self-Help Enterprises (SHE), in partnership with Tulare County Association of Governments – TCAG, QK Inc, Tulare County Regional Transit Agency (TCRTA), and TETER Architects & Engineers, celebrated the groundbreaking of Farmersville’s first Transit Center! 

Located at the Southeast corner of North Ventura Avenue and Front Street, the Transit Center will serve as a hub for fixed-route bus services in Farmersville and connect residents to Tulare County destinations. The building will total 3,643 square feet, including 1,432 square feet of enclosed office area and 2,211 square feet of covered outdoor transportation space.  

The Transit Center includes two bus bays for fixed-route service and the opportunity to access micro-transit, which will be offered in partnership with the Tulare County Regional Transit Authority. 

This transformational project will also connect with the future Cross Valley Corridor, connecting residents in Farmersville and the surrounding communities to the High-Speed Rail. Along with the transit improvements, SHE is also constructing Los Arroyos, a 108-unit affordable rental community in Farmersville. Anyone interested in learning more about the rental community and applying should contact the property manager at 559-239-9091. 

Funding for the project includes $2.6 million from the California Department of Housing and Community Development’s Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities (AHSC) program, over $900,000 of Measure R funding from the Tulare County Association of Government and $1.8 million from the Regional Early Action Planning (REAP) 2.0 also from TCAG.
