After a successful virtual listening session on Oct. 20, Santa Barbara MTD is reminding South Santa Barbara County residents to share their priorities for the future of South Coast transit.

Targeted toward both bus riders and those who don’t currently ride the bus, a five-minute survey can be found in English at, and in Spanish at

Earlier this month, MTD announced the launch of MTD Moves Ahead, a community process to create a Short Range Transit Plan that will guide bus service development, infrastructure investment, and capital needs for MTD’s bus system over the next five years.

New residential developments, changes to commutes, technology, and the economy all mean an opportunity to rethink transit on Santa Barbara County’s South Coast. To prioritize the community’s needs and desires for bus service, MTD is seeking broad suggests from everyone in the community — bus riders and non-riders, employees, employers, students, people with disabilities, seniors, and civic leaders.
