Smith River Fire Complex – RCT Service Update
Tuesday August 29th at 12 Noon

RCTA is open for business and generally running regularly scheduled service, with a few modifications, see below. The RCTA phone lines are generally back up, call the RCT Call Center at 707-308-7433. Should the phones go down again, the public can reach dispatch directly by calling 707-458-4895.

RCTA continues to operate service on a shorter span, running Crescent City Local Routes and our Special General Public Dial-A-Ride (GP DAR) from 8am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday. GP DAR is available for all trip purposes, including to get people to the Cooling Centers opened at Del Norte High School, Smith River School, and Margaret Keating School in Klamath, as well as work, medical, and shopping trips.

To recap, RCTA is running regular weekday service until further notice with the following exceptions:

Crescent City Local Routes (1-4) will operate on a shorter span, running 8am to 5pm

Route 199 is suspended until further notice. Riders in Hiouchi can request a ride by calling 707-308-7433 or 707-458-4895 if the main line is not answered.

Route 20 south segment (Crescent City to Eureka) is running a modified schedule. The early morning and late afternoon trips are operating as scheduled. Due to driver availability issues, the midday trip leaving Crescent City towards Eureka at 10:30am is suspended until further notice.

RCT plans to run this service level until further notice, and will provide updates as needed or weekly. There is no service on Labor Day.

RCTA appreciates everyone’s patience as we struggle with the impacts of the Smith River Fire Complex. Stay safe Del Norte and thank you all for your support.
