Oxnard, CA) – Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD), with support from Montecito Bank and Trust and Rubberneck Signs, is excited to announce the fourth annual appearance of its popular “Elf on the GO” holiday bus.

This year’s “Elf on the GO” holiday bus design is especially timely given the recent snow we are enjoying in the nearby mountains. The snowy “Elf on the GO” village is bustling with activity as jolly elves are happily building toys, wrapping presents and playing in the snow. Onlookers are sure to smile as they see the elves peering out the bus windows as they await the next stop to exit. On board, passengers are embraced with festive decorations and holiday music for a truly memorable experience.

“Montecito Bank & Trust is excited about rolling out our second Elf on the GO bus! It’s a fun and memorable way to bring the spirit of the holidays to multiple communities, every day, as we work to make the communities we serve better places to live and work,” commented George Leis, Montecito Bank & Trust President and Chief Operations Officer. 

GCTD’s 40-foot holiday bus will appear throughout GCTD’s service area from December 4th through January 4th. Passengers are encouraged to take pictures, tag #ElfontheGO and post to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for a chance to win goodies and prizes.

“We are thrilled to once again do our part to spread holiday cheer throughout the communities we serve”, said GCTD General Manager, Steven P. Brown. “It’s something we look forward to each year as it brings joy to the passengers who board and smiles to passersby.”
