SBCAG is restoring a Clean Air Express Santa Maria to Goleta (roundtrip) route 201 that was suspended last year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. To support commuter needs, SBCAG also added morning and afternoon stops in Buellton.
On March 1, the 5:15 a.m. departure from Santa Maria to Goleta will begin service. An afternoon return trip will begin at 3:20 p.m., departing from the bus stop at State and La Cumbre in Santa Barbara before making all scheduled stops in Goleta. The March 1 updated schedule is linked below with more details, including information on the additional stops.
