(Santa Barbara, Calif.) — Thanks to a partnership between UC Santa Barbara and Metropolitan Transit District (MTD), plans for enhanced bus service to and from the UCSB campus are locked in.

“It’s a win for the campus, it’s a win for our partners at MTD and a win for the larger community,” said Marc Fisher, UCSB senior associate vice chancellor for administrative services.

In a nutshell, bus routes 12x and 24x — two interlinked routes that take riders from downtown Santa Barbara to the UCSB campus and Isla Vista and back — will extend their hours of operation and reduce wait times. Those enhancements are currently scheduled to be in place by August 2015.
