In a partnership between Butte College and the Butte County Association of Governments, Butte Regional Transit has added a new bus route to the Butte College Main Campus.
Starting January 25, 2010 the B-Line Route 31 bus from Paradise to Oroville, will arrive on the main campus at approximately 7:20 a.m. and will depart from the campus for Paradise at about 5:20 p.m., Monday through Friday.
“We have been trying for quite some time to find some kind of bus service to serve our faculty and staff who live in the Paradise/Magalia area,” said Mike Miller, Butte College director of facilities, planning and management. “This is a win-win for everyone. It will increase ridership on the B-Line route, reduce the number of cars on the road --thereby reducing the carbon footprint --and be a cost savings to our staff and faculty who commute from that area.”
Miller stressed this addition to the B-Line Route 31 is a pilot program which will be tested through the spring semester and summer. If ridership increases and remains high, he is confident the stop at the main campus will become a permanent part of the route.
