Proposed service change affecting OCTA-NCTD connection in San Clemente

Back in 2011, I published the story Transit Trip in Trouble about possible changes to North County Transit District’s #395 between San Clemente and Oceanside.

NCTD is now considering cutting the #395 and replacing it with a flexible-destination service (“FLEX”). Unfortunately, the replacement service would run only as far as Camp San Onofre, leaving Camp San Mateo and San Clemente unserved and breaking the connection with Orange County Transit #1.

NCTD proposal for Line 395 to Camp Pendleton. The new FLEX route would only travel as far north as Camp Onofre, leaving Camp San Mateo and San Clemente unserved

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A series of public outreach events will be held in early April: visit http://www.gonctd.com/servicechanges/ for details.

Statements may also be mailed to:
NCTD Service Changes,
810 Mission Avenue,
Oceanside, CA 92054

or emailed to: servicechanges@nctd.org.

The NCTD board will meet on April 20; any approved changes will go into effect in October.

    NCTD board meeting is next Thursday and they will be having a public hearing on these changes and this will be the final hearing, then the changes will go to a vote, to be implemented in October. NCTD is looking at options aka “alternative service concepts” for San Clemente, should there be the demand for it. Otherwise, NCTD will just tell people to go on Greyhound or Metrolink if they need service to San Clemente.

    I don’t have the board audio with me, but it appears that NCTD did go through with the 395 conversion to a FLEX route as it is no longer mentioned on the website.
