Good news, public transportation fans. Your weekend bus options are about to expand. Here's a press release from the Humboldt Transit Authority:

Beginning Sunday, November 4, 2012, the Redwood Transit System (RTS) will operate on Sundays. RTS travels between Trinidad and Scotia with stops in Rio Dell, Fortuna, Eureka, Arcata and McKinleyville.

Sunday Service was made possible through the Unmet Needs Hearings that was directed by Marcella Clem from HCAOG [the Humboldt County Association of Governments] and strong community support from transit advocates like Arcata resident Paul Pitino.

Another result from the Unmet Needs Hearings was bus service to Willow Creek on Saturdays that started this past July and has been very successful. For your voice to be heard or more information on the Unmet Needs Hearings you can visit www.hcaog.net

Other recent improvements to the transit system has been Wifi that was installed on RTS, Southern Humboldt, and the Willow Creek buses so passengers can access the internet for free during their ride. GPS was also installed and soon passengers will have the ability to text a number to get the actual arrival time for the bus at the stop that they are waiting at. 

For more information about the local transit systems in our area go to www.hta.org or call the toll free number at (877) 688-0826.
