Please note that due to the popularity of the 7 a.m. Route 41 run between Paradise and Chico, B-Line runs a concurrent ROUTE 40 EXPRESS during the school year that serves the Paradise stops, then goes directly to the downtown Chico Transit Center.
It follows the current Route 40 Westbound (inbound) counterclockwise run, beginning at the Paradise Transit Center at 6:44, with time points at Skyway/Wagstaff 6:58, Almond/Birch 7:05. It then heads straight the Chico Transit Center (bypassing Forest Ave and making only one stop, at the Chico Park 'n Ride), arriving downtown around 7:35.
Route 40 EXPRESS does not operate during the Chico State summer or winter breaks. Route 40X is currently on summer break and set to resume on Monday, August 27, 2012. It will then operate through Dec 21, 2012, at which time it breaks for the winter. It will then resume Jan 28, 2013 through May 24, 2013.
