Would you like to help take the Torrance Transit system to the future?

We are currently studying all aspects of our bus service, which includes overall ridership, bus schedules, route design, on-time performance, and more. Changes are forthcoming and we want to hear from you.

We need your input from existing riders and members from the community to help create a strategic plan to optimize Torrance Transit for the next 10 years. We encourage you to learn about the project and take our online survey so we can learn about your transit needs and priorities.
