Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) will implement its biannual service changes on Sunday, July 9, 2023. Some weekday and weekend schedules will be affected, and some evening and late night trips will be discontinued due to low ridership. Please take a look at alternative services you can take for impacted trips here.

The following is a summary of the schedule adjustments:

Printed schedules, “Bus Books”, are available on all buses, at the Customer Service Center, and various locations around the county. A digital bus book can be found online.

A bilingual information sheet summarizing the service changes is also available here. If you use trip planning Apps like the GOVCBUS app, schedule changes will appear by July 2nd.

Alternative service options include our newly launched, GO Now on Demand Service, a new rideshare service available in South Oxnard. The service is available to anyone 14 and older within the South Oxnard area GO Now service zone. The on demand service will provide short local trips for just $2.00. Download the TransLoc App to book your ride between the hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday.

For evening trips, Late Night Safe Rides is a shared ride, demand response service available to anyone over the age of 16 who requires transportation within the GCTD service area from 7 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. Reserve your ride 1 hour-1day before, daily up to 11:30 p.m. by calling (805) 485-2319.
