Santa Clarita Transit Launches GO! Santa Clarita Service

Post Date:03/02/2020

Santa Clarita Transit Launches GO! Santa Clarita Service

On-Demand Service in Canyon Country and Fair Oaks FREE in March

 

            Beginning Monday, March 2, 2020, residents within the Fair Oaks and Canyon Country areas will have a new transportation service available to them. GO! Santa Clarita is an on-demand transit pilot program offered by Santa Clarita Transit. The grant-funded program will provide curb-to-curb transportation within a designated service area, as well as to key destinations in the City, including the College of the Canyons Canyon Country Campus, Santa Clarita Child & Family Center, Via Princessa Metrolink station, Santa Clarita Sports Complex and Walmart location on Carl Boyer Drive.

            GO! Santa Clarita is an app-based public transit service similar to Uber or Lyft and is open to the general public. Users can download the MV Passenger app for iOS or Android devices and, with a few simple clicks, request a ride from GO! Santa Clarita. The initial service area provides access to neighborhoods that have a high demand for transit, as well as areas that are currently not served by traditional fixed-route buses. Residents can use GO! Santa Clarita to connect to local stores and amenities, as well as to other transportation options, such as Santa Clarita Transit buses or Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line for longer trips.

            “We’re extremely excited to offer this new service,” stated Administrative Analyst Alex Porlier. “By leveraging technology, we’re able to put a modern spin on transit in Santa Clarita and make our services even more accessible.”

GO! Santa Clarita will operate for free during the month of March, after which time the regular fare will be $2.00 per trip or $1.00 for reduced-fare patrons. For more information on operating hours and service area, please visit GO-SantaClarita.com.
