At the June 30, 2015, meeting of the Colusa County Transit Authority, Transit Manager Kent Boes unveiled its new fleet of buses.

A total of five, 2015 Glaval, 19 passenger buses, were purchased with Public Transportation Modernization, Improvement, and Service Enhancement Account (PTIMESA) Grant Funds at a cost of $399,231.

The buses will replace its aging and high mileage vehicles currently in transit service.

In addition to new busses, the Colusa County Transit will sport a new color scheme and design.

The design was inspired by Williams High School Student, Deisy Paniagua, who submitted her artwork for the Colusa County Transit Bus Logo Competition.

Supervisor Kim Vann congratulated Paniagua and presented her with a $100 check.

Featuring key elements from Paniagua’s design, the new bus will feature the ‘Three Sisters’ mountain range and a country road.

“Everyone seemed very pleased with the new design,” said Boes, “I would like to congratulate Deisy on her accomplishment.”

The graphics were applied by Rough Ryderz of Colusa.

The new buses will also feature several security cameras that also record sound to enhance passenger and driver safety.

Boes also commented that the buses will continue to feature business advertising on the outside of the bus as well as feature spots in the interior.

“The new buses will have affordable advertising options for businesses inside the bus,” said Boes, “it’s a great opportunity for businesses to promote themselves.”

The PTIMESA Grant also allowed for the Colusa County Transit to repave its deteriorated parking lot and in the planning phase of a solar parking structure.

The Colusa County Transit is a Dial-a-ride Service servicing Colusa County. Open Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 7 PM.

Earlier this year the Colusa County Transit expanded its operation hours to 7 PM, allowing for county residents to utilize the public transportation system to travel to and from work.
