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 largest 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 Program; 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.

2017 Shasta Coordinated Transportation Plan
​The 2017 Shasta Coordinated Transportation Plan was approved by the SRTA Board of Directors on February 28, 2017.  Focused on public transportation for the elderly, disabled, and persons of limited means, the plan outlines priority strategies for consideration over the next five years.  In addition to maintaining existing service levels, the plan looks to better coordinate service among providers, promote mobility management, and look for efficiencies/improvements in operation. 

​Please do not hesitate to contact senior transportation planner Kathy Urlie if you have questions.
