Central Coast Bus System Gets New Buses


With ridership booming, a Central Coast bus system has upgraded its fleet of buses.

Santa Ynez Valley Transit has added two new buses to its system.  The system links four communities:  Buellton, Solvang, Los Olivos and Santa Ynez.

Officials say so far in 2020, ridership is up by almost a third from the same time period last year. 

The two new buses will be used to replace a pair of aging buses owned by the transit service.
