KMUD Interview with Jan, the driver of the Quail, Southern Humboldt's transit bus, does a good job of explaining why transit is important for SoHum, and what the peril is in losing it.
The Quail is open to the public on Tuesdays for trips from Garberville/Redway to Eureka (1st and 3rd Tuesday) or Fortuna (2nd and 4th Tuesday). Schedule is here or call HTA at 443-0826 for more info.
There's also a group in SoHum that is exploring options for transit in SoHum. Contact Julia Minton to get involved.
