CAT: Camarillo Area Transit


Welcome to the City of Camarillo's CAT. We're here to help you get around the city safely and efficiently. Our Fixed Route bus travels the city, stopping at pre-determined locations, while our Dial-A-Ride bus operates on a reservation basis. There is also a link to the Ventura County transit system to help you travel outside the city limits.

How do I make reservations?
To make a reservation, call (805) 988-4228. Be prepared to provide the following information:
  • Your name and telephone number.
  • Your pick-up location.
  • If you live or work in a large complex, please be specific.
  • Your desired pick-up time.
  • Your destination.
  • What time you need to be at your destination.
  • Your return time.
  • If you need special assistance (walker, wheel chair, etc.)
Reservations are accepted:
Monday thru Friday (7:30 am - 5:30 pm)
Saturday and Sunday (8:00 am - 4:00 pm)
Riders may leave a message after hours by telephone.

Reservations may be made from 2 hours to 2 weeks in advance. If the reservation is made prior to the day of the requested ride, you will be picked up within 10 minutes of your requested time.
If a reservation is made on the same day you plan to travel, an agreed upon pick-up time will be determined when the reservation is made. You may be asked to call back to verify your pick-up time as adjustments may be made to accommodate all passengers on the DAR bus.
For example, if you call at 9:00 am and request a pick-up time of 11:00 am, you may be given a pick-up time between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm. Every effort will be made to schedule the pick-up time as close as possible to your requested time.
You will be informed as to whether the DAR bus or an alternate shuttle vehicle will pick you up. In the case of an alternate shuttle vehicle, the fare is the same but must be paid in cash.
  • Questions

    What is Camarillo Area Transit Dial-A-Ride?
    The CAT Dial-A-Ride (DAR) is a curb-to-curb transit service, similar to a taxi service. This service is available to the general public and will take you anywhere within the Camarillo city limits. However, the DAR bus is not intended to replace school buses, as space is limited. Therefore, reservations will not be taken for students to travel to and from school. All DAR buses are clearly marked for identification. They are equipped with two-way radio systems, wheelchair ramps and tiedowns.
    What kind of rides and how many may I reserve?
    Rides may be made for any purpose, such as medical appointments, work, shopping or other personal business, with the exception of rides to and from school. Shopping bags are limited to three (3) bags per rider. When you call to make a reservation, you may place as many requests for trips as you wish. More than one (1) failure to cancel will remove you from making advance reservations.
