NextBus System Ready for Trolley

The City of Ojai working with the Ventura County Transportation Commission is pleased to announce the availability of NextBus.  NextBus is a sophisticated GPS tracking system designed to give riders real-time information by showing how many minutes it will be until the next trolley arrives.  Trolley riders can access this information with Smart phones that have internet access, or from a computer.  Many people who use public transportation are already familiar with NextBus, and the Trolley Service is pleased to offer this tool to its riders.  In addition to online access, monitors will soon be installed at key stops.  Then anyone can see when the next trolley will be at that stop.  To access NextBus online, go to or click on the link below to be directed to the Ojai Trolley on NextBus.
