The City of Thousand Oaks will once again offer the Summer Beach Bus, a public transit service running between Thousand Oaks and Zuma Beach in Malibu.

This is the ninth year that Thousand Oaks Transit will provide the service, which operates weekdays from June 20 through August 5; no travel on July 4th. Two round trips will be available each day.

The bus departs from the Borchard Community Center parking lot and the Thousand Oaks Teen Center bus stop and drops off and picks up at the #8 Zuma Beach parking lot.

Masks may be required depending on the status of local mandates for public transportation services in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

The seats are limited. Riders will be boarded on a first come, first served basis. Passengers are encouraged to arrive at the stop at least 15 minutes before departure.

The teen center is under renovation and is not open to the public. Limited restrooms are available at the nearby Goebel Center.

The fare is $8 round trip for the general public and $4 for seniors 65 and over and persons with disabilities. Payment is cash only and is collected in person upon boarding.

For departure times, check the timetables posted at each stop or go to transit.org/beachbus. Parents and passengers can track the location of the bus in real time at govcbus.com/map.
