UCSB Bus Lines Extending Service


UCSB’s express bus lines — 12x and 24x — are scheduled to extend their hours of operation and decrease wait times by fall 2015 because of a recent partnership between the university and MTD. The 24x, which goes from the downtown Transit Center to the UCSB bus loop and El Colegio and Storke roads, will run until 11:15 p.m. (two hours later) during weekdays, and until 11 p.m. on weekends. The added lines will cost the university $1.3 million each year and will also include a new route to connect Goleta, Isla Vista, and UCSB (scheduled to be implemented in fall 2016). Thirty-five percent of MTD routes lead to UCSB.
