Planning Documents

Designing transit service in Ventura County provides challenges that are unique due to the mixture of rural and urban areas and the diverse needs of our community.  GCTD encourages the public to provide us with input on how we can better serve the needs of our community. Before making changes, we analyze ridership data, on-board surveys, public and employee input and county-wide demographic data to design quality bus service.  Additionally, GCTD partners with the Ventura County Transportation Commission (VCTC), the  Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), as well as the local jurisdictions to provide transit service to the community.

We encourage you to send us your questions, suggestions or bus stop issues by email:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Service Changes
Service adjustments typically take effect in July and January of each year. GCTD will provide notice in advance of potential changes to get feedback before implementation.

GCTD Planning staff is currently preparing for the service changes scheduled for July 28, 2019. The proposed service changes were presented at a community meeting on May 22, 2019 at the Downtown Oxnard Public Library. Learn more.

Passenger Surveys
A strong understanding of passenger needs is critical for GCTD to continue to deliver a responsible transit service that is efficient, attractive and convenient.
