Transportation

Traveling around Chico—an area that has been ranked in Money magazine’s “Fastest Commute” listing (2006)—is made simple through several modes of transportation.

Affordable public transit is provided through Butte Regional Transit, “The B Line,” a service offering options for local travel to destinations throughout the county. In addition to Butte Regional Transit, commuters can take advantage of Glenn Ride, a transit service between Butte and Glenn Counties; Plumas Transit, offering round-trip service between Chico and Quincy on Wednesdays; or Greyhound service. The Craig-C Shuttle, available to Craig Hall residents and guests, services Chico State.

Air service is offered through the City’s Chico Municipal Airport (CMA), a facility capable of handling air carriers, commercial aircraft and general aviation planes. CMA offers regular service to and from San Francisco via Skywest/United Express and is home to an FBO that offers refueling, servicing and flight training services. Expanded commercial flight service is available at Sacramento International Airport (SMF), which is easily reached by utilizing North Valley Shuttle Service or SuperShuttle services.

Commuter rail service is available through Amtrak, which operates a station at West 5th and Orange streets in Chico. The Coast Starlight, a route that runs between Seattle, WA and Los Angeles, serves the station.
