Santa Barbara MTD has launched a community survey, seeking feedback from community members — current, former and future bus riders.

With the COVID-19 pandemic changing so much about how the community lives, works, plays and travels, MTD wants to hear about peoples’ current take on transit. Are you using transit to get to an essential job? What would make you feel more comfortable riding the bus?

The survey also describes service changes that take effect on Aug. 17. Due to the public health and fiscal emergency declared by the MTD Board of Directors, service levels will be lower than normal on certain lines, with some lines remaining suspended for now. These levels may be adjusted in coming months as workforce constraints, ridership, and fiscal pressures change.

Links to the online survey can be found at in both English and Spanish.
