Origins of the VVTA
VVTA operates local fixed-route, county commuter (discontinued in 2005), and ADA complementary paratransit bus services in the Victor Valley area. It has a maintenance facility located in Hesperia. The service structure consists of 23 local fixed and deviated routes, 3 County routes and ADA complementary paratransit service. VVTA was established through a Joint Powers Authority in 1991. The JPA includes the four cities of Adelanto, Apple Valley, Hesperia and Victorville and certain unincorporated portions of the County of San Bernardino including Oro Grande, Helendale, Lucerne Valley, Phelan, Pinon Hills, Wrightwood. Service is also provided to Barstow and Fort Irwin. The Fort Irwin service is branded as the NTC Commuter. The Board of Directors includes council members from the above cities and the San Bernardino 1st District Supervisor. Since 1998, the Board has held a management contract with McDonald Transit Associates, Inc. for administration of the syatem. In January 2005 the operations contract for all transit service in the Victor Valley area was consolidated under a separate contract with ATC (now Veoila).
VVTA routes are grouped into two different categories: Deviated routes, and County routes.Deviated routes serve a pre-determined route and stops, but can deviate as far as 3/4 mile off that route to pick up passengers with advanced reservation. County routes are similar to Deviated routes, but they serve outlying rural areas and charge a higher fare. County routes do not charge a deviation fee for deviated trips to designated locations within outlying communities.
County Routes and Fixed Routes
Passengers who require a deviation on either Deviated or County routes must pay a service charge:
Since no regularly scheduled service stops in either Piñon Hills or Wrightwood, there is no additional charge for trips to the Piñon Hills Post Office or the Piñon Hills or Wrightwood Community Centers.
VVTA also provides Direct Access Dial-A-Ride service to persons with disabilities. The fares are charged on a zone basis as follows:
The VVTA operates 99 active and spare buses in its system as of June 2012.
Victor Valley Transit Authority is administered by a Board of Directors, made up five Members (each with an alternate). The four board members from the cities are elected council persons assigned to VVTA by their respective city councils. The fifth Board member is the San Bernardino 1st District Supervisor (generally a staff person or the supervisor represents the County as the alternate). The Board is required under the JPA Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)to meet at least one time each quarter of each fiscal year. Board meetings are generally held every month . All meetings are held in compliance with the Ralph M. Brown Act. Board meetings are presided by the Board-appointed Chair. The Board of Directors is responsible for such acts as adopting the budget, approving route and schedule changes, holding the yearly unmet needs hearings, public hearings as required, appointing the CEO/General Manager, appointing a technical advisory committee, establishing policy, and adopting rules and regulations for the conduct of business. The VVTA Technical Advisory (TAC) committee is the working group for the VVTA Board. It is composed of a staff member from each of the cities and County who is generally appointed by the City Manager, County Supervisor. The TAC takes direction from the Board to make recommendations on policy issues. In addition, TAC reviews monthly all suggested Board agenda items and decides on what actions to recommend to the Board for approval.
