  • REMINDER - Except for the Yuba College Bookstore in Linda, all area Connect Card pass outlets are now closed. The Yuba-Sutter Transit administrative office is closed to the public except by appointment. New or replacement photo ID cards will only be available under a very rare exception since these cards are not needed to board buses until further notice. Please call (530) 634-6880 between the hours of 8:00 – Noon and 1:00 – 5:00 to discuss if an appointment is needed. 
  • We are recommending that ALL PASSENGERS wear face-coverings at all times. 
  • Transit is for ESSENTIAL travel and activities only.
  • All passengers must have a destination and are not allowed to travel in more than one direction or on more than one loop of a route. 
  • Passenger On-Board Limit: Local fixed-route buses now have a twelve (12) passenger limit at any given time. If a bus is full, it will not pick-up additional passengers until it is at a safe capacity. Dial-A-Ride buses now have a two (2) unrelated passenger limit or a four (4) person limit when with a companion/attendant.
  • On local fixed-route buses, passengers who are physically able will be asked to board and exit the bus through the rear door.  The front door will still be available to those requiring a ramp.
  • Passengers will not be allowed to sit in the first row of seats on Sacramento Commuter and Dial-A-Ride buses.
