Service Change Postponed - Reduced Schedule to Remain in Effect

AVTA Postpones Service Changes Scheduled for August 31 Until Further Notice

Lancaster – On August 12, 2020, AVTA announced the decision to postpone the service changes that were scheduled to take effect on August 31, 2020.

Due to the ongoing and ever-evolving coronavirus pandemic and the resulting decline in ridership, AVTA postponed the service changes that included increased frequencies on the local bus route system, and the launch of a new late night on-request service. Commuter route changes to connect with LA Metro’s system, planned for August 31, 2020, will also be delayed until further notice. 

Community outreach and public discussion regarding these changes will continue as AVTA seeks to gain a deeper understanding of the Antelope Valley community's transportation needs and how this current crisis may have modified our riders' needs and preferences.  Visit the Let's Talk Mobility Project Website here for more information.

Reduced Schedules Will Remain in Effect: 
All AVTA local transit routes will continue to run a reduced schedule for all days throughout the week, Monday through Sunday, until further notice. For specific timetables, please see AVTA’s Saturday schedule or click here to download the reduced local schedule
