Antelope Valley Transit Authority is the transit agency serving the cities of Palmdalemarker, Lancastermarker and Northern Los Angeles County. Antelope Valley Transit Authority is operated under contract by Veolia Transportation, and is affiliated and offers connecting services with Metro and Metrolink.

History

The Cities of Palmdale and Lancaster and the County of Los Angeles joined together in 1992 to create the Antelope Valley Transit Authority to meet the growing need for public transportation in the Antelope Valleymarker. AVTA began local transit service on July 1, 1992 with three types of services: Transit, Commuter and Dial-A-Ride. A fourth service, Access Services, was created in 1996 to provide the disabled with a local complementary paratransit service in line with the Americans with Disabilities Act. In 1998 the Tuesday Medical Shuttle was created, which offered rides to nine major medical facilities in the Los Angeles basin and San Fernando Valleymarker.To keep up with the increased need for transit services, AVTA opened its new, larger facility in 2004.

About AVTA

AVTA has tripled the number of passenger trips in just over a decade of operation. To keep up with the increased need for transit services, AVTA recently opened a new, larger maintenance facility in Lancaster.

AVTA pays for a much higher share of its costs through fares compared to other transit systems in Los Angeles County.

Awards

AVTA is an award-winning transit agency. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors recognized AVTA as an “Efficient Transit System”. The California Transit Association gave a “Transit Innovation Award” to AVTA in 1998 and a “Transit Image Award” in 1999.
