RABA Offering Free Rides For Veterans To Start 2024

Veterans can now ride Redding buses for free. The policy took effect Tuesday and applies to all fixed route and demand response services through Redding Area Bus Authority. For the past 14 years RABA, the Shasta County Veterans Services Office and various non-profits have held the annual “Salute to Veterans” event to buy bus pass punch cards for veterans. Those cards are no longer necessary, as veterans may now ride for free by using any ID card indicating veterans status or they may acquire a card directly from RABA. Information is at rabaride.com.
