Halloween Street Closures to Disrupt MTD Service

Bus routes may be delayed or discontinued because of crowds expected in Isla Vista on Friday and Saturday

Local law enforcement has notified the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District of likely street closures related to crowds expected in Isla Vista on Friday and Saturday for Halloween.

All streets in Isla Vista will be affected by street closures, and MTD will not have the ability to provide service beyond North Hall on the UCSB campus. However, regular service will be provided to the Storke Road and Hollister Avenue area. Once street closures have been implemented, service on Line 27 will be discontinued until streets are reopened.

There could be substantial delays with other MTD bus routes. Click here for more information about all MTD routes.

Riders are encouraged to contact the MTD customer service department at 805.963.3366 with questions.

— Kate Schwab is the assistant manager of marketing and customer service for the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
