January 5, 2020, Marysville, CA – Yuba-Sutter Transit is introducing a new service that will for the first time connect Yuba College’s Sutter County Center Campus in Yuba City to the rest of the local fixed route system. Starting Monday, January 13th, a free shuttle bus will operate every 30 minutes in both directions Monday through Thursday between the Sutter Center and Yuba-Sutter Transit’s Walton Terminal near Sam's Club.
Using a small 16 passenger Dial-A-Ride type vehicle, the new shuttle will operate Monday through Thursday from 7:35 a.m. to 6:05 p.m. during the Spring and Fall Semesters on regular school attendance days including finals. During the Summer Semester, the service will end at 4:05 p.m. No service will be provided on Fridays. The complete Spring and Fall shuttle schedule is now available under the “Routes” tab on the Yuba-Sutter Transit website home page at www.yubasuttertransit.com.
While designed for Yuba College students including co-enrolled high school students, the free shuttle is also open to the general public. It will operate as an express service between the Sutter Center and the Walton Terminal (next to Sam’s Club) with just one other stop at the Harter Parkway and Spirit Way bus stop near River Valley High School on the way to the college campus. Shuttle passengers will be able to transfer to and from any of Yuba-Sutter Transit’s three local fixed routes and Sacramento schedules that serve the Walton Terminal. There is no charge to ride the new shuttle, but all regular fares will still apply to any other routes or schedules that are used.
This demonstration service has been funded at least through the Fall Semester of 2021 by a grant from the State Low Carbon and Transit Operation Program (LCTOP). For more information, call or email Yuba-Sutter Transit at (530) 634-6880 or (redacted). ###Press Release - Yuba College Shuttle Jan 2020
