FRESNO, CA – The City of Fresno officials announced a Fresno Area Express (FAX) six-week pilot project to serve Inspiration Park via westbound Route 9.

As a result of collaboration with the Administration, Council President Esmeralda Soria, community groups and service organizations, FAX analyzed existing service in the corridor and developed a strategy to provide service to Inspiration Park and the surrounding area through the summer months.
