EDA encourages all community members, tribal members, and employees to use our transit services provided by the Yuma County Area Transit (YCAT) system.

You can connect to the Yuma County Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority website by clicking on the link below:

There you will have access to find Schedules, Fares, Passes, System Maps, Riders Guides, News & Updates, Calendar of Events, and Rider Alerts.

Turquoise Route 10 and Blue Route 5 is funded in part by the Quechan Indian Tribe and Imperial County Transportation Commission (ICTC) and is operated by Yuma County Intergovernmental Public Transportation Authority (YCIPTA).

YCAT Returns to Regular Schedules 

On Monday, March 22, 2021, YCAT returned to full/regular schedules. 

With the increased demand and the decrease in positive COVID-19 cases, YCAT will be returning to full schedule. Riders can continue to board for FREE.  We are still observing social distancing and enforcing the mask mandate at stops and while on board.  Schedules are as they were pre-COVID with the following exceptions:

  • Purple Route 6A is a NEW schedule
  • Yellow 95 – Route is running with exception of the 7:20 am run that normally would depart from the Downtown Yuma Transit Center
  • Orange 2 – Route is running with exception of the 6:53 am run that normally would depart from the Yuma Palms Regional Center
