Provide Input on MTD Service Changes

Take Survey and Attend Public Meetings

Santa Barbara MTD is hosting a set of public outreach meetings this April, and is inviting the public to take a brief survey giving feedback on proposed service changes to local bus service. These meetings are held annually in the spring to receive input on the proposed changes that would go into effect on August 14, 2023.

Proposed changes include:

  • New peak hour Line 19x (Carpinteria/SBCC Express) serving Carpinteria, Santa Barbara’s Eastside, and SBCC
  • Restoration of Line 28 (UCSB Shuttle) service
  • Lines 23 (El Encanto Heights) & 25 (Ellwood/Winchester Canyon) endpoint connection
  • New microtransit service in Goleta and Isla Vista

MTD invites the public to learn more and to give feedback via an online survey that explains all the proposed changes at The survey is available in English and Spanish.

Community meetings will be held at the following locations and times, and Spanish/English interpretation will be provided:
