Anderson Route 9 has been modified/expanded to include Route 8. Route 9 will provide service to/from the "5000 Rhonda Road (Walmart)" and "SR 273 at Happy Valley Road" stops. (Note: starting 07/01/17, there will be no Route 8.)

Anderson Commuter (AC) has been modified to better align with Route 9. AC will start near Anderson (depart the "SR 273 at Happy Valley Road" stop at 6:50 a.m.), travel to Redding (depart the "Downtown Transit Center" at 7:20 a.m.), and end in Anderson (arrive at the "5000 Rhonda Road (Walmart)" stop at 8:15 a.m.). AC will interline with Route 9 Northbound, both before and after its run (this means that the same bus will serve AC, as well as the Route 9 Northbound runs that depart the “5000 Rhonda Road (Walmart)” stop at 6:20 a.m. and 8:20 a.m.).  AC provides fast, direct service to/from Redding first thing in the morning (weekdays only).
