The city of Lompoc has announced it is moving the Transit Transfer Center from Mission Plaza Shopping Center to Cypress Avenue and between H/I alley and J Street in the downtown section of Lompoc. The new center will open Monday, April 2.

The move is part of the city's effort to enhance public transportation services and improve the effectiveness of the local, regional and inter-regional transit connectivity system.

The Transit Transfer Center serves the City of Lompoc Transit (COLT) routes, as well as the Wine Country Express and the Breeze Bus. In addition, the new location, the city will add the Clean Air Express to the buses it serves.

The old Transit Transfer Center will still be used by all its previous routes, but will no longer be the hub.

The new Transit Transfer Center facility integrates a bus-loading area with the capacity to serve five-seven buses.

There will be new pedestrian sidewalks featuring decorative pavers, Americans with Disabilities Act accessible ramps, five bus shelters, site furnishings (benches, trash receptacles), lighting, landscaping and irrigation.

As part of the project, the city has planted new species of trees, a variety of shrubs and ground cover, and created an aesthetically pleasing landscape that complements the bus facility and surrounding downtown area.

Funding for the Transit Transfer Center project came from California Proposition 1B, which was passed in 2006 to provide money for transit and highway projects. The cost of the project is about $800,000.

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!
