Parking and Pedestrian Access

PROJECT DESCRIPTION 

• The Thousand Oaks Transit Center (TOTC), located at 265 South Rancho Road, just south of the 101 Freeway consists of a main transit building, three bus passenger loading bays, and upper and lower parking lots.

• The number of buses arriving at TOTC during peak hours exceeds the existing capacity at the passenger loading areas.   As a result, passengers are currently being loaded from an existing lane of travel without protection.

• In addition, the existing pathway from Rancho Road to the bus loading area is not pedestrian friendly, and no safe walkway exists between the lower parking lot and bus loading areas for pedestrians and those riders covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act. 

• To remedy these safety concerns, the redesign of the bus parking area and addition of an accessible pedestrian path from both lower parking lot as well as Rancho Rd to bus loading areas was developed and approved by the City Engineer.
