Goleta Valley Mayor Roger Aceves will wield the big scissors to officially open the new TVM. MTD passengers will be able to purchase all types of passes with cash only at this time. Developed by GFI GenFare of Illinois, the Vendstar machine is fast and easy to use – simply follow the instructions posted on the machine.

“We’re pleased to have this machine now open and available for the convenience of our Goleta passengers,” said MTD General Manager Sherrie Fisher. “The Goleta community is an important part of MTD’s service area.”

MTD has two TVM machines in use at the downtown Transit Center (1020 Chapala St.) and one in the Albertson’s in Carpinteria (1018 Casitas Pass). A third community location is yet to be determined.

The mission of Santa Barbara MTD is to enhance the personal mobility of South Coast residents and visitors by offering safe, clean, reliable, courteous, accessible, environmentally responsible, and cost-effective transit service throughout the district.
