Kern County has announced that we will be moving to an “essential-staffing only model” effective tonight until April 14th. Even though our County office will be closing, because transit is an essential function, Kern Transit will keep operating for as long as we safely can.

It is our intention to continue operating our regular schedule. Unfortunately, it may become necessary for us to cancel trips, possibly with short notice. Before travelling….

1- Please check our Facebook or Twitter feeds frequently, or go to our website for the most up-to-date information.

2- Please call 1-800-323-2396 Option 1, to speak with a staff member. Because of the County office closure, no one will answer if you choose Option 5.

Also, for everyone’s safety, please wash your hands often (with soap and hot water for 20 seconds), practice social distancing (keep six feet between you and others), limit yourself to essential trips only, and STAY HOME IF YOU’RE SICK.

Thank you for your cooperation during this extraordinary time.
