Microtransit Update – HTA Testing Ride Humboldt Flex Service

November 3, 2023

It has come to our attention that news about Ride Humboldt Flex, HTA’s bus stop to bus stop microtransit pilot, is now being widely shared. We are thrilled so many people are interested in this new service!

Flex is currently in a testing phase so we can identify areas of improvement and correct weaknesses before inviting the public to use the system. Our priority is for riders to have a positive experience on Flex. If you choose to participate in this testing phase based on online information from other sources, we ask for your patience and request that you leave feedback through the system after your ride. HTA is not offering technical assistance to new users during testing.

Flex is much like Uber or Lyft where you can schedule custom rides, but in a shared vehicle. You will be able to take trips to and from any bus stop, as well as additional approved locations that will be added over time. It will be ADA accessible but is not a door-to-door service like Dial-a-Ride.

We look forward to sharing Ride Humboldt Flex with you, keep an eye out on our website and social media accounts for more information!

Humboldt Transit Authority awarded 17.5 million in grant funds.

April 26, 2023

Humboldt Transit Authority awarded 17.5 million in grant funds.

Project: Expanding Transit Service and Growing Zero-Emission Fleets on California’s North Coast.

This project will deploy 4 battery electric buses on the Yurok Tribal Transit Service for two routes,

including a dial-a-ride service for tribal members, providing key connections to the statewide transit and rail system. The routes will be operated by the Yurok Tribe and provide service from Orleans to Willow Creek through the Karuk, Yurok, and Hoopa Tribal lands.

The awardee will also deploy 6 zero-emission vehicles on an existing Redwood Coast Transit intercity route to Arcata, extend service into Eureka, and construct a new transit center in Crescent City.

Importantly, this will leverage a previous TIRCP award by integrating an existing route and expand service to the new Eureka Regional Transit and Housing Center, which was the subject of a Cycle 5 TIRCP award.

Lastly, the project will design and pilot a prototype over-the-road fuel cell electric coach in an effort to more permanently address the challenges posed with operating zero-emission long-distance routes.
