FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ROUTE 1 EXPRESS SERVICE ENDS JUNE 30th
June 21, 2021, Marysville, CA – In response to recent changes in state and local health directives, Yuba-Sutter Transit has dropped all on-board passenger capacity limits. Signs blocking off certain seats have been removed and all seats are now available allowing full capacity on all buses. As a result, the Route 1 Express service will end on Wednesday, June 30th.
The Route 1 Express service was added in June 2020 to facilitate social distancing as on-board capacity limits had resulted in passengers being passed by especially on Yuba-Sutter Transit’s cross-town Route 1. The limited-stop express service greatly reduced the number of passengers being left behind at bus stops and made cross-town trips faster by serving only the major transfer points along the route. Without on-board capacity limits, the express service is no longer necessary, and the drivers can be better used elsewhere.
Ridership is tracked daily on all Yuba-Sutter Transit services and future changes to return services that were suspended last year will be considered as ridership grows. Suspended services include half-hour weekday service frequency on Route 2 and several morning and afternoon Sacramento Commuter schedules.
