TRANSIT INTEGRATION AND EFFICIENCY STUDY

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Ventura County Transportation Commission is leading an exploratory effort to identify potential efficiencies in the delivery of quality local and regional bus transit throughout Ventura County.  There are currently nine bus transit systems throughout the County – VCTC Intercity, Gold Coast Transit District, Valley Express Bus, Simi Valley Transit, Camarillo Area Transit, Thousand Oaks Transit, Moorpark City Transit, Ojai Trolley, Kanan Shuttle, and Connect – ECTA InterCity Dial-a-Ride.  Each transit provider is a project partner working alongside VCTC to identify strategies that will most effectively improve passenger experience and better integrate the existing transit services throughout the County.

This study is a first step at identifying potential opportunities for transit integration and efficiencies in the County. Based on the outcome of the study, VCTC will engage with a broader set of stakeholders to further refine recommendations and establish a path toward implementation.
