Kern Transit just started a new route along Highway 178 between Lake Isabella and Ridgecrest (Route 227: lake Isabella – Ridgecrest). Route 227 stops where the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) crosses Walker Pass. For PCT hikers wanting to take public transit to and from the trail, this is great news.

The Pacific Crest Trail Association blog has more information, “Public transit to the PCT at Walker Pass and between Lake Isabella and Ridgecrest”.
