About TO Transit
The City serves the community with public transport through a number of fixed routes with regular bus service through Thousand Oaks Transit (TOT). The bus routes serve Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village and the unincorporated areas lying within the City’s geographical boundaries. There are five fixed routes (“Green”, “Purple”, “Gold”, “Red” and “Blue”) with interconnections at the City’s Transportation Center and The Oaks Shopping Mall. The City also operates a Metrolink shuttle which transports passengers to and from the Moorpark Metrolink Station in sync with commuter trains to/from Los Angeles. Fixed route bus services operate from around 5:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on weekdays, and begin three hours later on weekends. 

About Dial-A-Ride
Dial-A-Ride is a door-to-door service which can be reserved in advance or on-demand, for disabled passengers and those 65 years or older. The local Dial-A-Ride (DAR) service also connects with the cities of Camarillo, Simi Valley and Moorpark, and the County of Ventura to provide connected service through the East County Transit Alliance. Dial-A-Ride offers subscription reservations for regular recurring trips, advanced reservations up to two weeks in advance, same day reservations made at least two hours in advance, and up to two on-demand requests per day for a small additional charge within limited hours. Regular DAR service operates the same hours as fixed bus route service.
