Overall these changes were well received; however, there were a few routes that needed some tweaking. B-Line listened to all the passenger comments and made several revisions to improve your enjoyment of the system. The highlights of these changes include: Adjusting timings and adding additional time points on several routes, including Route 15, for better on-time performance; reestablishing the Cohasset/Rio Lindo loop on our new Route 16; adjusting the times on the local Oroville routes for better connections; creating an additional evening commuter run on Route 20 with more direct service between Chico and Oroville; making the timings on Route 41 more consistent; adding a new Route 9c to serve the Cedar area when the Student Shuttle is not operating; redesigning Route 8 for broader coverage; looping Route 5 by the Chico Mall and adding service to the Dorothy Johnson Center during select times. How to Read the Schedule Routes on the maps are color-coded to match the schedule information. Each route schedule shows selected time points listed from left to right. Sometimes, a bus continues service as another route, which is listed at the right side of the schedule. Read across the schedule from your boarding time to find the time the bus will arrive at your destination. Although only a few selected time points are listed for each route, the bus will pick up or drop off passengers at any bus stop along the route (a complete list of stops is available on our web site). You can estimate the time the bus will be at your stop by looking at the nearest time points. Be sure to arrive at the bus stop a few minutes early. Hours / Days of Operation B-Line operates seven days a week. Some routes do not operate every day. Check the timetable of the individual route for exact days and hours of operation. Service is not provided on New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day (July 4), Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Rules ensure safety and comfort for all passengers and the driver. We ask that riders observe the following Rules of Conduct while on the bus:

    No eating, drinking or smoking on board.

    No standing in front of the “standee line” while bus is in motion.

    No unnecessary conversation with the driver.

    No abusive, threatening or obscene language or actions.

    No radios or other sound-generating equipment may be used without headphones aboard the vehicles.

    No hazardous materials or weapons of any kind shall be brought on board.

    No animals, except properly documented service animals, shall be allowed on board, unless in a secured cage.

    No signs or other materials may be placed on the bus except by transit management.

    No marking, etching, cutting or damaging the bus in any way.

    No obstructions are allowed in the aisle. Strollers must be closed while in transport.

    No illegal activity of any kind will be tolerated while on board the bus.

    Depending on the severity of the violation, the following penalties may be enforced for riders who violate any of the Rider Rules of Conduct:

    One (1) violation will result in a verbal warning.

    Two (2) violations will result in a written warning.

    Three (3) or more violations will result in suspension of service for a minimum of 30 days.

    Rider Rules of Conduct

    When you see the bus nearing your destination or transfer point, signal to the driver you want to get off. Please give enough notice so the driver can make a smooth stop. Depending on the type of bus, press the yellow strip, push the yellow button or pull the cord above the window. The driver will stop at the next bus stop. If you are not familiar with the area, ask the driver to let you know when the bus is nearing your destination.

    Exiting the Bus

    As the bus approaches the bus stop, stand near the bus stop sign and make sure the driver can see you. Stay out of the street at all times.

    Some bus stops are served by more than one route. Check the route number on the destination sign above the windshield or ask the driver if you are unsure.

    Have exact fare, a pass or transfer ready when you board the bus. The driver cannot provide change if you pay more than the posted fare. If you will need a transfer to complete your trip, let the driver know when you board the bus. If you are paying for multiple passengers, please let the driver know before inserting your cash fare.

    Flag Stops

    For most B-Line routes, passengers must get on or off the bus at designated bus stops, marked by bus stop signs. Flag stop areas are sections of some bus routes where passengers may board at any safe location, whether or not a bus stop sign is posted. Within a flag stop area, it is necessary to “flag” the approaching bus that you wish to board. Routes that have flag stop areas are 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 41 and 46. See the Oroville and Paradise route maps for more detail.

    To “flag” a bus, stand at a safe location on the roadside where the driver can see you. Wave to the approaching bus so the driver knows you wish to board. If it is safe to do so, the driver will stop to let you on. To get off the bus at a flag stop, advise the driver well in advance so he or she can determine a safe location to stop.

    Popular Transfer & Connection PointsThe three transit centers in Chico, Paradise and Oroville, along with the Forest Avenue Transfer Point (Forest Xfer), are designed to make transfers between routes quick and easy. In looking at the B-Line schedule you should notice that almost every route that goes to a Transit Center is timed to meet up with other buses.

    In addition, many routes have well-timed connections away from the transit centers. Listed here are descriptions of some of the more useful connection points. There are many other transfer points, but these are some of the most common. (In the descriptions below, TC = Transit Center)

    If the route you are planning to transfer to has a tight time connection, be sure to let your driver know you are planning to transfer, so the other bus can watch for you. Because the whole system runs on timed transfers and connection points, the driver generally cannot wait more than three minutes for a transfer from a bus that is running behind schedule.

    To get between Chico and Oroville Runs on Route 20 are timed to meet with the local routes in both Chico and Oroville at each TC. To get to Chico from Thermalito, take Route 24 and transfer to Northbound Route 20 at Butte County Public Works.

    To get to Oroville from Magalia Take the first Westbound Route 41 to Skyway & Wagstaff, transfer to Southbound Route 31. (This connection point also works for the Butte College bus).

    To get to Magalia from Clark RoadTake Westbound Route 40 and transfer to Eastbound Route 41 at either the Paradise TC, or Skyway/Wagstaff, or Skyway/Clark. The location depends on the timing for that particular run.

This run is timed to allow taking Route 40 to either Clark Road, or to Chico. In the p.m. take Route 40 back to Skyway & Wagstaff, then transfer to Route 41.

    Bicycles

    Bike racks are located on the front of all B-Line buses. Racks are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Riders are responsible for loading and unloading bicycles. Drivers cannot assist with the loading or unloading of bikes.

    Please tell the driver before you load your bike. When you get off the bus, ask the driver to wait while you remove your bike from the rack. After you have removed the bike, wave to the driver to indicate it is safe to drive away.

    Passengers use the bike racks at their own risk. B-Line assumes no responsibility for damage or loss to the bicycle or any items thereon.

    All B-Line vehicles are fully equipped with wheelchair* lifts and a wheelchair securement area with space for two wheelchairs. The bus operator will provide assistance with normal boarding or exiting, wheelchair securement, and operation of the lift. Any additional assistance would require the use of a Personal Care Attendant (PCA).

    B-Line drivers are required to secure all wheelchairs before leaving the bus stop. For safety reasons, B-Line recommends using your own seat belt to secure yourself in your wheelchair. All riders are strongly encouraged to use the shoulder and lap belts provided on the vehicles.

    Most B-Line buses kneel by lowering the front steps for easier boarding by passengers with mobility limitations. Please let the operator know if you need to use the bus kneeling feature upon boarding or exiting.

    *Wheelchair means a 3 or 4 wheeled mobility aid that does not exceed 30 inches in width and 48 inches in length and does not weigh more than 600 pounds when occupied.

    B-Line Paratransit

    The schedules in this brochure are for the regular fixed route bus system. B-Line also provides Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) complementary Paratransit service. ADA Paratransit is a service for persons that have impairments that prevent them from using the fixed route system.

    To be eligible for B-Line Paratransit, riders must complete a Paratransit application. Additional premium service may be available to non-ADA-qualified individuals, including seniors 65 years of age or older. To register for these services, call B-Line’s administrative office at (530) 879-2468. At your request, an application packet will be mailed to you explaining registration and eligibility certification procedures.

    The B-Line ADA Paratransit service area generally follows a corridor three-quarters of a mile from the fixed route service. Service on B-Line Paratransit generally operates during the same times as the fixed route services within each service area.

    B-Line ADA Paratransit is $2.50 for a one-way trip. Ten Ride Passes are available for $25.00. $50 value cards are also available.

    For more information, pick up the B-Line Paratransit Rider’s Guide or go to www.blinetransit.com.
