Busy travel week expected at Arcata Transit Center

ARCATA- The Arcata Transit Center is expecting a busy week, as Humboldt State University students wrap up finals and other travelers head out of town for the holidays this week.

Wednesday till Friday will be their busiest day and the transit has ordered extra buses to keep up with demand. However, the transit center says they have to turn bus riders away on a daily basis because they have not made a reservation.

Other bus riders this year are electing to drive because of the drop in gas prices. Even asking for a bus ticket refund.
