Kern Transit will implement new schedules for all of its routes beginning Monday, August 4th.  The new schedules are designed to improve on-time performance and to provide better service to shopping, schools, and medical offices.

“Many of our schedules haven’t been updated in more than a decade,” said Bob Neath, Kern Transit manager.  “We’re finally able to address many of the comments our passengers have made over the years.  We’re excited about the changes and the improvement to our service.”

The new schedules are available online at Kern Transit’s website,  In addition, a series of public meetings to explain the changes will be held throughout the County during the month of July.  Meeting dates, times and locations can be found on Kern Transit’s website or by calling (661) 862-8850.
