Yuba-Sutter Transit, formed as a joint powers authority in 1975 by Sutter and Yuba Counties and the Cities of Marysville and Yuba City, is the sole provider of public transportation services for both counties and the four cities therein. Since its inception, Yuba-Sutter Transit has carried out this charge by contracting with private transportation companies (currently Storer Transit Systems) for the operation of all services. The agency operates six fixed routes and a paratransit service in the local urban area; weekday intercity commuter and midday service to downtown Sacramento; and three rural flex-routes serving the Yuba County foothills along with the Cities of Live Oak and Wheatland. Yuba-Sutter Transit is governed by a Board of Directors composed of two elected representatives from each of the four member jurisdictions.


Located just north of Sacramento County, the Yuba-Sutter bi-county region is known for its outstanding quality of life and an affordable cost of living. From the Sutter Buttes and the Sacramento River on the west to the sweeping Sierra Nevada mountains on the east and plenty of open space, the Feather River, and clear skies in between; residents share an appreciation of the outdoors and take full advantage of the area’s many recreational opportunities.

Neighborly and ethnically diverse, area residents participate in a wide variety of cultural festivals, community-oriented fairs, parades, and seasonal events. Other recreational activities include boating and fishing on area lakes and rivers; hiking and hunting in prime wildlife habitat; golfing on local courses; and numerous Farmers Markets for locally grown fruits and vegetables. All of this and just a short distance from Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, and San Francisco — Yuba-Sutter is a great place to live, work and play!
