NEW - FREE FARE FOR TRAVEL TO COVID-19 VACCINATION APPOINTMENTS!
In cooperation with Yuba & Sutter County Public Health, we are now offering free fare on all services to those who present a valid confirmation of a same-day vaccination appointment. Valid proof may be in the form of an appointment card, email or text with the passenger's name and appointment details. Each passenger wishing to utilize the free fare must present their own valid confirmation. Drivers will verify proof before allowing fare-free boarding. This offer is scheduled to end on June 30, 2021, and will be re-evaluated at that time to determine a need to continue. Read the full press release here.
