Starting Monday, August 5, 2013 the County of Ventura will sponsor a shuttle on Kanan Road in Oak Park. This demonstration service will operate from about 6:40 am to 6:30 pm Monday through Friday except major holidays from Roadside Drive in Agoura Hills along Kanan Road up to Lindero Canyon. Service will be free at least until November 2013.
The Kanan Shuttle will serve Oak Park High School, Medea Creek Middle School and the residential areas near Kanan Road. See MAP.
The vehicles will have bicycle racks and be accessible to people with disabilities.
To ride the Kanan Shuttle, there is no need to call to request a ride. Just check the schedule and go to a bus stop displaying the Kanan Shuttle logo.
During peak hours (about 6:40 – 9:00 am and 2:30 - 4:00 pm) buses will run every 15 minutes. At other times, the buses will run every 30 minutes. See SCHEDULE. Riders will be able to transfer to and from Metro Route 161 at Thousand Oaks Boulevard and Kanan Road or at the bus stop near the Burger King on Roadside Drive.
Most shuttle riders will be able to walk from one of the shuttle bus stops to their destination in Oak Park. During peak hours, (about 6:40 - 9:00 am and 2:30 - 4:00 pm) coordinated vans will meet the shuttle at Kanan Road and Deerhill Road and at Kanan Road and Golden Eagle Drive and carry passengers to the areas outlined with blue dashed lines on the Kanan Shuttle Map. Riders must call ahead to ensure there is room for them in the coordinated van. During peak hours riders must walk or take the coordinated vans. The Dial-a-Ride will not be available for that purpose. For the return trip to these shuttle bus stops during peak hours, riders should call to schedule a pick-up by a van by calling 818 707-2005.
Senior citizens, those with disabilities and Agoura Hills residents may continue to use the Agoura Hills Dial-a-Ride to and from locations in Oak Park. When the coordinated vans are not operating, riders may request rides to areas beyond walking distance from shuttle stops from the DAR using the number shown above.
