The Antelope Valley Transit Authority began service in the Antelope Valley on July 1, 1992. AVTA currently serves a population of over 450,000 residents in the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale, as well as the unincorporated portions of northern Los Angeles County. Its total service area covers 1,200 square miles and is bounded by the Kern County line to the north, the San Bernardino County line to the east, the Angeles National Forest to the south, and Interstate 5 to the West. The fixed route service area consists of approximately 100 square miles.
AVTA operates a network of 13 local transit routes, four commuter routes, and one supplemental school route for the William J. “Pete” Knight High School.
FARES & SPECIAL SERVICES:
To serve those who serve us, all United States active military and veterans ride FREE with proper identification.
AVTA offers a special Senior Annual Pass to eligible seniors 62 years and older, which will allow them to ride for FREE on local transit service.
Dial-A-Ride Fares & Reservations
Dial-A-Ride is a curb-to-curb transportation service that was developed to enhance mobility for the elderly and disabled, and for those living in the outlying regions with no access to public transportation. Reservations may be made up to two days in advance and on the same day. Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis.
The program, “Campus Connect”, is available through an application process for students who are enrolled in six or more units per semester.
Low Income Fare is Easy: Rider Relief is now LIFE
Now known as LIFE (Low Income Fare is Easy), which is funded by Los Angeles Metro, Antelope Valley residents can obtain a discount off the cost of a monthly AVTA bus pass if their income level qualifies.
