ShastaConnect’s Rural Public Transportation services are provided weekdays (Monday-Friday) for Shasta County’s residents living throughout rural Shasta County, outside of the Redding Area Bus Authority (RABA) service area. This includes the general public, as well as our Consolidated Transportation Services Agency (CTSA) riders who are seniors (60+ years of age) and mobility-impaired individuals (18 and over). Our door-to-door service helps anyone who can’t use conventional transit services get where they need to go, whether it’s a trip to the grocery store, the doctor’s office, or a friend’s house.


Our staff goes above and beyond.

Our team of drivers is dedicated to providing all riders with attentive, friendly service, and a great transportation experience. All vehicles are wheelchair accessible.

Our services are available Monday through Friday. Rides are provided from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Dispatch hours to schedule a ride are from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

We generally request 24-hour advance reservations, but we can sometimes accommodate late or same-day requests depending on our schedule.


We currently serve the following areas:

Cottonwood, Happy Valley, Bella Vista, Millville, Palo Cedro, Burney, Fall River, Cassel, McArthur, and the cities of Anderson, Redding, and Shasta Lake (outside RABA service area). But if your area isn’t listed, that doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t pick you up. Give us a call and we’ll see what we can do to get you where you need to go.

Trips are provided for eligible riders located outside the RABA service area or where trips are to/from the RABA service area. We don’t provide trips that are only within the RABA service area.
