Auburn Transit began piloting a route May 21st that shuttles visitors from the Auburn Business Districts down to the river confluence. The plan provides a way to park – stress-free – and be shuttled down to the Confluence, making 5 primary stops along the way:
Springhill Suites (top of every hour)
Old Town Auburn by Historic Firehouse
Downtown Auburn at Elders Station
Fairgrounds main parking lot
Confluence (40 minutes past the hour, 10 minute stop)
How it works:
Look for the “Confluence Route” bus signage at each location.
The cost is $3.50 per person for a round trip and will run 9 am through 5 pm, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. That’s cheaper than parking down there- if you can even find a spot! You can buy your pass on the bus, with exact change/cash only. If you are planning ahead, you can buy these passes at City Hall during normal business hours (Mon-Fri 8 am-5 pm).
No reservations are needed to ride this route.
The bus can accommodate up to 16 people at a time.
The bus is outfitted with a bike rack, that can accommodate up to 6 bikes at a time, first come, first serve.
Any backpacks or other carry-ons need to be able to fit between you and the seat in front of you.
Masks are currently required to ride the bus! You will not be allowed to ride without one, so please prepare!
For after-hour questions or more information, the drivers will monitor this line for assistance: (530) 906-3700.
Now, go out and enjoy the great outdoors this weekend!
Thank you PARC for all you have done to make this happen!
