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.

2017 Shasta Coordinated Transportation Plan
​The draft 2017 Shasta Coordinated Transportation Plan is available through February 18, 2017 for review and comment.  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. The SRTA Board of Directors will consider the plan for approval at their February 28, 2017, 3:00 PM meeting, at which time public comments will be accepted.  The meeting location is:  

SHASTA COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS CHAMBERS, 1450 Court Street, Suite 263, California.
