A South Coast transit system is beefing up service on some of its key routes in an effort to reduce wait times.

Gold Coast Transit is adding buses to six routes. In some cases, it will restore service which was reduced during the pandemic. In other cases, it will add new service. The changes will go into effect July 25. Masks are still mandatory for all passengers.

Gold Coast's fleet of more than 80 buses and vans carry more than 3 million people annually. The transit system serves much of western and central Ventura County, including the cities of Ventura, Ojai, Oxnard, and Port Hueneme.
