B-Line starts service on Forebay Shuttle

June 11, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

The B-Line is set to begin service on the new North Forebay Shuttle this coming Monday, June 15, and will run daily through August 15. The Shuttle will make three round-trips every day starting at the Oroville Transit Center.

Beginning Monday, June 15, and running through the summer (ending on Saturday, August 15), Butte Regional Transit (the B‐Line) will provide daily service to the North Forebay State Park. The Forebay Shuttle, as it will be known, will operate seven days a week with three round trips. All trips originate at the Oroville Transit Center (at Mitchell & Spencer), and will make one additional pick up at the 3rd & Grand Park & Ride, before arriving at the Forebay. The three daily trips begin at 8:00 a.m., 12 noon, and 5:00 p.m.

The timing of these trips maximizes the activities at the Forebay. The 8:00 a.m. run is perfect for those attending the youth camps and those who want to get an early start to the day. The noon trip allows for an afternoon of fun, and provides access to the Aquatic Center, which is open from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. In addition, the noon return trip is timed to bring back those morning campers who choose to ride the bus. The 5:00 p.m. trip is designed mainly for people to return back to town from the Forebay, although some may ride it out for a nice evening at the Park. If people need to leave other than the designated shuttle times they have the option of taking a short walk and catching the incoming Route 20 (from Chico), at the Garden/SR 70 stop, on an hourly basis. Normal B‐Line fares and transfer policies will be in place. The regular one‐way fare is 1.50, Youth (ages 6‐18) is 1.00 and discount (seniors/disabled) is .75. All B‐Line passes will be valid on the shuttle.

The shuttle has two stop locations within the North Forebay State Park – at the Picnic Table/Beach area, and at the Aquatic Center. This shuttle has come about through the cooperation of several agencies, including the Butte County Association of Governments, the City of Oroville and the State Department of Parks and Recreation.
