Bus Tracker is an award-winning tool for the Fresno community to report and track incidents on the FAX bus system.
The data collected from Bus Tracker informs the City of Fresno on ways the bus system can be improved. The project relies heavily on community-driven data, which is collected, sorted and displayed on an easy-to-use interactive map that's made available to the public on the official Web site. While the information is not directly tied to the Fresno Area Express, Fresno's metropolitan bus service, the information is provided as a report to that city department.
In Feb 2012, BusTracker won "coolest app" award at the State of California's Government Mobility Conference.Read more: BusTracker

These neighborhoods are around Romain Park (745 N. First St.) and Holmes Park (212 S. First St.) where youth violence is most prevalent. Fresno Metro Ministry is rising to The Endowment’s challenge by providing services to hundreds of youth during the key summer months and after-school when youth are seeking activities and positive environments from which to learn, grow and have fun.
