BLM and Lassen Rural Bus Offering Saturday Shuttle Service on Bizz Johnson Trail

Friday, June 7th, 2019

The summer bus shuttle service on the Bizz Johnson National Recreation Trail, a partnership of the Bureau of Land Management and Lassen Rural Bus, runs every Saturday morning through the season, offering bicyclists and walkers an easy way to get to the best spots along the trail.

On Saturdays, the bus picks up passengers at 8:30a.m. at the Historic Susanville Railroad Depot, 601 Richmond Road, and makes stops at Devil’s Corral, Fredonyer Summit and Westwood.

This allows hikers and mountain bike riders to use the trail for return trips to Susanville. Depending on the stop, the return trips are 7, 18 and 30 miles.

The BLM shuttles bicycles in a specially-designed trailer. Participants should arrive early to allow time for bike loading. There are separate fees for the bike shuttle and bus service.

During the first part of summer the bus will stop only at Devil’s Corral because western reaches of the trail are too muddy for use.

On weekdays, trail users can also use the Lassen Rural Bus West County Commuter service that picks up riders at the Main Street and Gay Street intersection and on Riverside Drive near Walmart, both in Susanville and can make stops at the above Bizz Johnson Trail drop-off stops.

Groups of more than six can arrange special bike shuttle service for mountain bike outings from June through October. Groups can reserve the bike shuttle by telephoning the BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, (530) 257-0456.

Fare and schedule information can be found on the Lassen Rural Bus’s website at www.lassentransportation.com, or by calling 530-252-7433. For information on the trail or reservations, contact the BLM’s Eagle Lake Field Office at: 530-257-0456.
