FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OROVILLE SEASONAL EMPLOYEE SHUTTLE SERVICE TO END AUGUST 20TH
August 11, 2021, Marysville, CA – Due to insufficient ridership to justify the operating cost, Pacific Coast Producers (PCP) is terminating their Yuba-Sutter Transit service agreement for the short-term seasonal employee shuttle service two weeks early. The service will now end with the 3:45 p.m. departure from PCP’s Oroville facility on Friday, August 20th. Until that time, the service will continue to operate as scheduled.
This route, which began July 12th, was created with the financial support of PCP to provide a safe and reliable transportation option for plant employees during the busy food processing season. While ridership has gradually increased over the four weeks of service, it remains well below the level necessary to justify continued operation and PCP has chosen to terminate the route two weeks short of the scheduled end date of Friday, September 3rd.
The Oroville shuttle operates three roundtrips a day, seven days a week with service from stops in Yuba City, Live Oak and Gridley to the employee entrance at the Oroville facility. While the schedule is designed to coordinate with the three main work shifts at the plant, the shuttle is also open to the general-public.
