Summer Trolley Service
to Lake Casitas
Beginning May 25, 2013 and ending on August 31 2013, the City will provide Ojai Trolley service on Saturdays from the Park and Ride in downtown Ojai to Lake Casitas, with an additional stop at the southbound new bus shelter at Von’s on Hwy 33. Riders can also get on and off at HWY 33 and Loma and on HWY 150/Old Baldwin Rd and Rice Rd by the paint store. Then throughout the day service will be provided in and around the Lake Casitas recreational area utilizing a set route pattern to offer riders the opportunity to access key destinations within the premises. The trolley will also provide transportation back and forth from Lake Casitas to downtown Ojai several times throughout the day at designated scheduled times. This will allow campers the opportunity to come into Ojai for a few hours for lunch, shopping, or just enjoy some time in town. Fares will be the same as the existing fares to ride the trolley, with Day Passes also available for double the fare, allowing riders to ride as many times as they like on that day. Schedules will be available to the public before the service begins. The following gives a look at some of the projected times of the schedule;

NextBus System Ready for Trolley
The City of Ojai working with the Ventura County Transportation Commission is pleased to announce that the NextBus system is available beginning October 8, 2012. 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 www.nextbus.com or click on the link below to be directed to the Ojai Trolley on NextBus.
