In compliance with the Governor’s “Stay at Home” order, we are CANCELLING the “in person” comment collection event scheduled for tomorrow morning at the GET Downtown Transit Center in Bakersfield. We look forward to having “in person” events throughout the county when it is safe to do so.
Due to decreasing ridership caused by the COVID-19 pandemics, Kern Transit is making the following service changes:
Effective immediately, all local fixed routes in the Kern River Valley area have been suspended. In their place, we are offering curb-to-curb Dial-a-Ride service with additional buses as needed. Route 150 (Lake Isabella – Bakersfield) and Route 227 (Lake Isabella – Ridgecrest) will continue to operate on their regular schedule.
Beginning Monday, we are making the following changes to our Bakersfield-based routes:
No changes are proposed at this time to our Mojave based routes, 230 (Mojave – Ridgecrest), 240 (Mojave – Boron) and 250 (California City – Lancaster).
Accommodations will be made for passengers who use Kern Transit to reach life-saving medical treatment, such as dialysis, and are adversely affected by these changes. Riders needing accommodations can call 1-800-323-2396 for assistance.
For the most up to date information, please visit our website at kerntransit.org, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter @KernTransit.
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.
