AVTA Seeking Public Opinion on Proposed Service Changes

Lancaster – Antelope Valley residents will have the opportunity to voice their opinion regarding proposed service changes that are under consideration by the Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA). The agency is seeking public comment through a series of outreach efforts that will take place over the next several weeks.

All of the public input received will be incorporated into a set of final recommendations that will be presented to the Board of Directors during a public hearing at the May 24 meeting. If approved, the service changes would go into effect on July 25, 2016. "Our primary goal at AVTA is to provide excellent customer service to the residents of our community," stated AVTA Board Chair Marvin Crist. "We are constantly evaluating our routes to identify areas for improvement that better meet the needs of our residents. The feedback we receive from our customers is invaluable as it guides us in the right direction so that our route changes are effective.”

In response to initial community feedback, AVTA has developed service change recommendations that seek to improve route directness and shorten travel times.
