Redwood Coast Transit Service to Crescent City
RCT operates two Route 20 round trips between Arcata and Crescent City Mon-Sat. The service connects with Redwood Transit System's mainline service and Willow Creek service, and with Arcata & Mad River Transit service.
Google Transit allows passengers to seemlessly plan travel itineraries. Here's an example itinerary from Henderson Center, Eureka, to Crescent City.
Among the many uses for RCT's transportation service, I've used the bus to bike tour through Redwood National Park (actually, this trip was part of the data gathering project for Google Transit implementation). Highly recommended trip.
Their schedule isn't available too many places online, so we like to keep it posted here. Thanks to Anita from Blue lake Rancheris for sending it over.

Want to save some money on next year’s taxes? If you take transit to work, you may already know about commuter checks for those who ride transit, but starting this year, there is a tax break for bicycle commuters as well. With a new tax year beginning, this is the time to put things in place so you and your employer can save some cash. Here’s how each program works:
KMUD Interview with Jan, the driver of the Quail, Southern Humboldt's transit bus, does a good job of explaining why transit is important for SoHum, and what the peril is in losing it.
The Quail is open to the public on Tuesdays for trips from Garberville/Redway to Eureka (1st and 3rd Tuesday) or Fortuna (2nd and 4th Tuesday). Schedule is here or call HTA at 443-0826 for more info.
There's also a group in SoHum that is exploring options for transit in SoHum. Contact Julia Minton to get involved.
In Eureka, civic pride and public transit go way back
The Humboldt Transit Authority (HTA) Board discussed a proposed College of the Redwoods bus-fare discount program and the limited success in opening Tuesday’s Quail service to the general public at their Board meeting this morning in the HTA conference room.
