El Dorado County Transit Authority Services

El Dorado Transit provides public transportation to the Western slope of El Dorado County. Fixed route and dial-a-ride services provide mobility in the communities of Placerville, Diamond Springs, Cameron Park, Pollock Pines, El Dorado Hills, and commute trips into Sacramento and Folsom.

Established in 1975, El Dorado Transit initially served seniors and persons with disabilities in the greater Placerville area.  Public transit service became available to the general public in July 1980, with a combination of fixed-route deviation and demand-response services.
