SRTA has reissued a request for proposals to prepare the North State Intercity Bus to Rail Plan.
The goal of the North State Intercity Bus to Rail Plan is to coordinate and plan for better intercity bus options in the short- and mid-term and improved passenger rail transportation in the long- term between the Shasta Region and the large metropolitan areas of Greater Sacramento, the Bay Area, and north into Oregon as well as improve connections across the North State. Transit planning and coordination around the I-5 and SR 101 corridors is an immediate need because transit agencies must coordinate and plan for upcoming state and federal zero emission requirements to maintain and enhance intercity bus connections. The plan will include an assessment of the rail hubs that are currently located in nearby communities as well as future service areas (e.g., those under consideration by BCAG for train service to Chico/Oroville) to identify the best ways to improve intermodal connections for travelers in the North State.
