New Direct Bus Route between Lancaster campus and Palmdale Center via AVTA

 

AVC students will benefit from a new local AVTA line, Route 8, which has been established to directly connect the Lancaster campus to their Palmdale Center, located at 2301 East Palmdale Blvd. The trip will take less than 35 minutes each direction and includes a stop at the Palmdale Transportation Center. This new route is made possible with $53,000 in funding provided by Antelope Valley College to support the first semester of service. Eligible AVC students can ride local AVTA buses for free utilizing a special student discount program supported by the Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District (AVAQMD), AVC and AVTA.

“We are excited to again partner with AVTA to provide greater access for our students,” said Ed Knudson, AVC Superintendent/President. “AVTA continues to show diligence, creativity and innovative resource allocation to enhance the transportation opportunities for the citizens of the entire Antelope Valley.”
