The 2040 Long-Range Transit Plan will be the blueprint for a sustainable, safe, innovative, integrated and efficient public transportation system. It will identify and help prioritize future transportation projects in order to meet the future needs of residents in the Shasta Region.

“We need to consider all of our options, develop a shared plan, and strategically invest in transportation infrastructure and services over time to meet tomorrow’s mobility challenges,” says Daniel Wayne, Senior Transportation Planner with the Shasta Regional Transportation Agency. “Having a strong and reliable public transportation network will not only address the diverse needs of residents of all ages and abilities, but it will also strengthen our local economy and keep the Shasta region vibrant and livable as it continues to grow.”
