City Sees 17 Percent Increase In Seniors Using Transit This Year

The City of Santa Clarita has been encouraging seniors to try free, local Santa Clarita Transit services as a way to increase their mobility throughout the community.  The City’s efforts paid off as ridership among seniors increased 17 percent this year. 

“Santa Clarita Transit offers reliable, convenient, and comfortable service and is ideal for seniors as it provides free transportation to just about anywhere in our community,” commented Mayor Bob Kellar.

One component of the City’s marketing efforts that has proven extremely effective is the Senior Transit Ambassador Program, which works to raise awareness about Santa Clarita Transit’s reliability and convenience.  Since its inception in April 2011, this program has provided a group of ambassadors who are familiar with the local routes with information and opportunities to plan senior-specific excursions to showcase local services. 

Santa Clarita began operating local bus service in 1991, assuming responsibility for local transit operations from the County of Los Angeles as Santa Clarita Transit.  Today, Santa Clarita Transit provide services seven days a week for seniors and the disabled within the Santa Clarita Valley, as well as for the general public during evening hours.
