Better Bus Service in Crescent City?
At its meeting next week, the Del Norte Local Transportation Commission will consider a resolution requesting state funds for revived Saturday service and a free bus pass program.

Bus Service Ending in Loleta Area
Meanwhile, the Humboldt Transit Authority Board heard this week that Tish Non-Village Transit, which has served the Loleta and Fernbridge area for the last three years, will be ending service soon. That’s because it has failed to meet a federal “fare box recovery” requirement, meaning not enough people are buying tickets or passes. HTA plans to adjust its Redwood Transit Service route to cover the area instead.
