Tuesday, Feb. 24, 2015 — After a special meeting Wednesday, Feb. 18, the Lassen Transit Service Agency approved the Lassen County Transportation Staff to enter into an agreement with Radio Engineering Industries to potentially bring a GPS tracking system to the Lassen Rural Bus fleet.

“The Secure Rural Schools Act fulfills a commitment made by the federal government to rural counties.We need to ensure that the federal government continues that commitment as it is vital to educating our children and providing good and safe roads in California’s rural communities,” said Dahle.
