Antelope Valley Transit Authority is the transit agency serving the cities of Palmdale and Lancaster, California and their suburbs.

Antelope Valley Transit Authority is operated under contract by Transdev, and is affiliated and offers connecting services with Metro and Metrolink.[1]

History

The Cities of Palmdale and Lancaster and the County of Los Angeles joined together in 1992 to create the Antelope Valley Transit Authority to meet the growing need for public transportation in the Antelope Valley. AVTA began local transit service on July 1, 1992 with three types of services: Transit, Commuter and Dial-A-Ride. A fourth service, Access Services, was created in 1996 to provide the disabled with a local complementary paratransit service in line with the Americans with Disabilities Act. In 1998 the Tuesday Medical Shuttle was created, which offered rides to nine major medical facilities in the Los Angeles basin and San Fernando Valley. [2]
