Effective August 17, 2013, Thousand Oaks Transit (TOT) will begin Saturday bus service from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the same four routes as weekday service.
Saturday service will be free to all riders though October 12.
The Thousand Oaks Transportation Center at 265 South Rancho Road will be open Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 8:15 p.m. with ticket sales available between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
The City was recently awarded a $600,000 Federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Grant which help make the addition of Saturday service possible as part of a three year demonstration project. Saturday bus service is expected to attract up to 400 riders per day.
TOT is the fourth largest transit system in the County with over 150,000 bus riders per year and TOT provides nearly 90,000 Dial-a-Ride trips to seniors and the disabled annually, more than any service provider in Ventura County.
TOT uses clean-burning compressed natural gas buses that are fully accessible to riders with mobility devices and are equipped with free Wi-Fi and easy to use bike racks. For additional information and schedules, please visit www.TOTransit.org or call the bus information line at 805-375-5473.
