Yuba River Shuttle

Shuttle service to the South Yuba River State Park- 49 Crossing.

The South Yuba River receives a reported 800,000 visitors annually. One of the most popular locations to visit on the Yuba is South Yuba River State Park- Highway 49 Crossing. Visitor parking in this State Park is extremely limited with only about 34 legal parking spaces. 

Inspired by the opportunity to mitigate parking challenges and provide an eco-friendly transportation alternative, we have created Yuba Bus.

The Yuba River shuttle service provides multiple pickups per day at Robinson Plaza (in front of the NC Chamber of Commerce) and the Rood Center. Thursday thru Sunday. All Summer long.

We also provide service to the guests staying at the Inn Town Campground- two times a day.

Yuba Bus is established as a community partner with the South Yuba Rivers Citizens League (SYRCL) to provide a safe, informative and responsible experience at the South Fork of the Yuba River. Please view our River Ambassadors page for suggestions on how to make the Yuba a better place.
