The City of Lancaster will be starting construction and maintenance in May on six local Antelope Valley Transit Authority (AVTA) bus stops to advance and improve the overall accessibility and safety for public transportation riders.

The project will ensure each stop is ADA accessible, including an ADA accessible route to the stop, and meets accessibility compliance standards. Each location will also receive traffic signal modifications to accommodate vehicle congestion and median modifications to improve overall roadway safety and efficiency.

These enhancements were identified through a survey conducted in partnership with the AVTA. The survey evaluated rider feedback, ADA accessibility and compliance, and the safety of each bus location.

“Lancaster is dedicated to improving our local transportation systems and we are eager to tackle the compliance and safety issues at these stops that riders helped us identify,” said City of Lancaster Vice Mayor and AVTA Chairman Marvin Crist.
