Public Transportation

There are many different types of public transportation, but in California the term evokes the image of a bus, or possibly a train.  In Shasta County, the dominant mode of public transportation is the bus, and the greatest public transportation provider is the Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA).  The Shasta Regional Transportation Agency (SRTA) collaborates with RABA; the county of Shasta; the cities of Shasta Lake, Redding, and Anderson; Shasta Senior Nutrition Programs; Native American Tribes; Caltrans; the Federal Transit Administration; and the Federal Highway Administration to maximize state, federal, and other revenues for cost-effective transportation investment strategies to connect communities, people, and goods.

2016-17 Coordinated Transportation Plan Workshop
​On July 14, 2016, SRTA hosted a forum to elicit suggestions on how to better improve the delivery of alternative transportation in the Shasta region.  Focused on public transportation for the elderly, disabled, and persons of limited means the discussion, and results from the workshop, will be included in the update to the 2007 Shasta Coordinated Transportation Plan.  A draft update will be  available for public and interagency review in January 2017.
