Service Changes 12.14.2020

12.14.2020 Services Changes to Routes 1, 2, 3, and 52:

Beginning on December 14, 2020, AVTA will implement route changes to better utilize new transit centers/charging facilities now available at the Boulevard Transit Center on Lancaster Boulevard and the South Valley Transit Center at Palmdale Boulevard and 40th Street East. Although these are minor adjustments, these changes will allow AVTA to streamline Route 1, increase vehicle efficiency, reduce bus switch-outs, and incorporate the new South Valley Transit Center for inductive opportunity charging.

IMPORTANT! As of December 14, 2020, buses are no longer arriving at assigned bays/locations (transfer points) at all transit centers, including PTC and OMP. When boarding, it is vital that you check the headsign on your bus. You may also confirm with your bus operator that you are boarding the correct route.

Commuter routes should still arrive and depart at current assigned locations. 

 

Route 1:

Route 1 will no longer start and end at 47th Street East and Avenue S. Route 1 will start and end at South Valley Transit Center (Palmdale Blvd. and 40th East). Route 3 will now service this eliminated portion at 47th Street East and Avenue S and cover the following stops #0902, #0903, #0904, #0905, and #0906.

Route 2:

AVTA is adjusting routing to continue service boarding and alighting at 47th Street East and Avenue R.
 

Route 3:

AVTA will eliminate the stop at Avenue O-8 and Sierra Highway due to low ridership. Route 3 will now service this eliminated portion of Route 1 at 47th Street East and Avenue S and cover the following stops #0902, #0903, #0904, #0905, and #0906.

Route 52:

AVTA is adjusting and extending the running time to allow for opportunity charging at the South Valley Transit Center. These adjustments will reduce the number of trips but will provide the same time coverage.
