Public Transit Division
The Public Transit Division is responsible for administering the city┬┤s local transit programs. The city has five transit programs:
  • Moorpark Transit - The local fixed route bus for general transportation. New service days and hours became effective August 10, 2013, with the help of a Federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) demonstration grant.  Monday through Friday service offers two bus routes, which operate 5:00 am to 8:00 pm.  Saturday bus service offers one route that operates 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.  In October 2010, the City began operating CNG buses for a cleaner and greener transit system.
  • Paratransit - Local ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Paratransit in the form of dial-a-ride vehicles for persons with disabilities who are certified by City and VCTC to use the system. Travel within the City is provided 5:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Friday. Weekend service is offered from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Inter-City Paratransit (subsidized origin to destination transit to Thousand Oaks, Camarillo, Oak Park and Westlake Village, and transfers to Simi Valley and Gold Coast Transit) is available through special supplemental funding. This service is offered from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. Limited Inter-City transit between Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, Oak Park, and Westlake Village is offered on the weekend, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm..
  • Senior Dial-A-Ride - This is a local (Intra-City) Dial-A-Ride service for seniors aged 65 and over. The senior Dial-A-Ride uses the same vehicles as the ADA service, and is available from 5:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Friday, and from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on the weekend.
  • VISTA-East - An inter-city express bus, VISTA-East connects Moorpark, Moorpark College, Simi Valley, and Thousand Oaks. It meets other VISTA routes, linking all Ventura County cities, the Warner Center in Canoga Park, and CSUCI.
  • Metrolink - The Ventura County Line of the regional commuter rail service goes from Montalvo (Ventura) to Union Station in downtown Los Angeles. This division manages the maintenance of the Moorpark Metrolink Station and interacts with the Southern California Regional Rail Authority (SCRRA).
Transportation Development Act
The city began financing the bus service in January, 1989 with the 1/4 cent sales tax authorized by the Transportation Development Act (TDA). Article 8c: TDA funds are used for the public transit programs except when other funding sources such as grants are available. General fund revenue has not traditionally been used for public transit in significant amounts.
