July 26, 2018, Marysville, CA – The first three of seven new big green buses went into revenue service today on Yuba-Sutter Transit’s Sacramento Commuter Express service. These 57 passenger buses complete the eight year transformation of Yuba-Sutter Transit’s fleet of specially equipped buses that are used exclusively for the Sacramento Commuter and Midday Express services that connect Yuba City, Marysville, Olivehurst and Plumas Lake with downtown Sacramento each weekday. By August 1st, all 13 of these buses will be luxury tour-style buses offering the same high-quality passenger experience on every schedule.
The new Motor Coach Industries (MCI) buses are nearly identical to those that have been purchased since 2010 with high-back reclining seats; overhead reading lights and parcel racks; three position bike racks; and, individual air vents to direct the high-powered air conditioning system. For most passengers, the most significant difference is the free Wi-Fi service that is now available on all seven buses, but this same feature will soon be available on our six older model buses as well.
We are excited to share these new buses with the community and we invite your feedback so please contact our office at (530) 634-6880 or drop us an email at (redacted) to let us know what you think.###
