Gold Coast Transit District Implementing Bus Service Changes this Sunday, January 26, 2020

Oxnard, CA – Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) will make schedule adjustments to its fixed-route bus service this Sunday, January 26th. GCTD typically makes bi-annual schedule changes each year in January and July based on analysis of ridership as well as community feedback.

Changes will include minor schedule adjustments on Routes 4A, 4B, 5, 6, 8, 16, 17, 19, 20, and 21. In addition, GCTD will be discontinuing Route 22 and extending Route 15, which currently operates in the unincorporated areas of Ventura County in El Rio. Areas of Nyeland Acres currently serviced by Route 22 will now be served by Route 15. 

Route 22 began to operate in July 2015 and was funded by a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant for its first three years. However, as a result of low ridership, the route was not able to meet minimum ridership requirements. 

As an alternative, bus service in Saticoy will continue to be provided by Routes 11 and 10, and Nyeland Acres will be served by Route 15. In addition, GCTD will be adding a Route 18 Tripper service (Route 18G) that will stop at Rio Mesa High School twice daily through the end of the school year. Other minor schedule adjustments will include timing adjustments in order to improve on-time performance.

Gold Coast Transit District’s Bus Book with new route and schedule information is available free of charge on every bus, online, and at GCTD’s Customer Service Center at the Oxnard Transit Center (OTC). Gold Coast Transit’s customer service team is available for trip planning assistance by calling 805-487-4222, Monday – Friday from 7 AM to 7 PM.   Trip Planning powered by Google Transit is also available online.
