In addition, we will provide paratransit services throughout an outlying defined paratransit area as service hours and resources are available. The paratransit service area is defined and determined by the Transit Services Commission of western Nevada County.

How it works
All rides are by advance reservation only, and must be requested the day before the trip, up to several days in advance. If you want, you can place a subscription for recurring trips.
