Gold Coast Transit District Information Sessions for Public Input in Advance of Service Changes

Gold Coast Transit District has planned two information sessions to gather public input on the service changes planned for July 31st.  Through several interactive stations and activities, the public will also have an opportunity to share their own transit needs and ideas for future transit improvements, and provide feedback on the design of new bus stop signs.

“Through the use of planning software and on-board passenger counting technology, our planning staff has the ability to analyze the efficiency of the entire system and make adjustments that ensure buses are on time.  However, bringing that information to the public and incorporating passenger feedback is critical to the success of any change”, said Vanessa Rauschenberger, GCTD Planning and Marketing Director.

Two sessions are planned in the cities of Oxnard and Ventura.   The District invites the public to attend one of the following:

  • Oxnard — Thursday, June 1, 2017

4:00 – 6:00pm

Oxnard Transit Center, 2nd Floor

201 East Fourth Street, Oxnard

  • Ventura  — Wednesday, June 7, 2017

5:00 – 7:00pm

E.P. Foster Library

Topping Room

651 Main Street, Ventura

There will be no formal presentation so the public is welcome to attend at any time during the times listed.  Transit planners will be available to answer questions and take suggestions.
