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.
Building Transit Supportive Communities
About the Plan: GCTD, in partnership with the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG), and with stakeholder input has developed a “Building Transit Supportive Communities” plan in order to identify strategies that local jurisdictions, developers, non-profits, architects and other decision makers can use to support and facilitate quality public transportation, active transportation and improved air quality in our communities.
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.
A strong understanding of passenger needs is critical for GCTD to continue to deliver a responsible transit service that is efficient, attractive and convenient.
