A variety of programs are available to Glenn County residents including programs designed to meet the needs of the general public and those with special transportation needs.

Transportation assistance such as Dial-A-Ride Service and Volunteer Medical Transport are special service programs. Users of the special service programs must be eligible for a Transit Service Card. Eligibility criteria: Seniors 60 years of age or older, Permanent Disability, Low income receiving Social Service Assistance or low income non-assisted (based on current federal poverty income guidelines). Applications for Transit Service Cards are available at the Paratransit Services Office and the Glenn County Planning and Public Works Office.

Glenn Ride is an affordable Public Transportation System for everyone with seven round trips every weekday and three round trips on Saturday from Willows to Chico with enroute service to Artois, Orland and Hamilton City.
