Popular holiday bus will be dashing through the streets all season long

Gold Coast Transit District’s popular holiday bus returns with a cheerful new design.

Gold Coast Transit District (GCTD) is excited to announce the eighth annual appearance of its popular holiday bus, which will be dashing through the streets all season long until January 7, 2024. All rides on board this special bus are free.

This year’s “Sea-Sun Greetings” holiday bus from Gold Coast Transit is a festive tribute to the beautiful coastline of Ventura County. The bus’s exterior is covered in colorful images of palm trees, waves, and adorable creatures, creating a cheerful atmosphere perfect for the holiday season. The bus’s interior is adorned with lights and ornaments, adding to the festive ambiance. The Sea-sun Greetings bus not only provides a fun and cheerful way to travel but also serves as a reminder of the natural beauty of Ventura County’s coastline.

“We are thrilled to bring back our popular holiday bus for another year,” said Vanessa Rauschenberger, General Manager of Gold Coast Transit District. “The holiday bus is a wonderful way to spread holiday cheer throughout Ventura County, and we hope our passengers enjoy the festive atmosphere as they travel. We encourage everyone to take a selfie with the bus and share it on social media for a chance to win a 15-ride Bus Pass. Happy holidays from Gold Coast Transit!”

The bus made its first major appearance at the Oxnard Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 2nd and was welcomed by crowd cheers, smiles, and photos. GCTD’s parade entry also included its six-foot “Minibus” and a GO ACCESS van adorned with decorative wreaths and ornaments.

Passengers are again encouraged to take selfies with the holiday bus and post them on social media. Sightings of this year’s holiday bus can be tracked by tagging GCTD on Facebook and Instagram. There will also be a contest to win a 15-Ride Bus Pass by sharing a photo of the Holiday Bus and tagging GCTD on social media with the hashtag #SeaSunGreetings.
