What is the Short-Range Transit Plan (SRTP)?

The last few years have brought significant change to West Ventura County, impacting every aspect of life – including public transportation. To better serve our community, Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) needs a transportation network that reflects the new ways we live, work, shop, travel, and play. 

The Short Range Transit Plan (SRTP) is the tool to get us where we need to go. The purpose of the SRTP is to improve mobility and quality of life in our region by:

  • Enhancing transit effectiveness and efficiency  
  • Restructuring bus service to optimize economic growth and regional connectivity 
  • Assessing the feasibility of creating a higher-quality transit corridor between Oxnard and Ventura 
  • Improving ridership, reliability, and customer experience.

We want to hear from you!

Take the community survey available October 12th to December 1, 2023. Click here to take the survey.

The cornerstone of the SRTP is community input. GCTD wants to hear from current and former riders and the community at large about the condition of the existing transit system. Take the community survey and tell us which parts of the system work well for you and what could be improved.

Youth and college students are a vital part of our community of riders and your voices matter.

If you’re a current high school or college student currently using Ventura County’s Youth Ride Free or College Ride Programs, what would motivate you to keep riding transit when you finish school?

Survey respondents who provide their contact information will be entered for a chance to win a $50 Visa gift card and a 31-day bus pass.
