Transportation The 955
The TRANSLOC app for THE 955 is available in app stores.
DELETE ANY OLD RIDE REQUEST APPS (particularly the "Westmont 955" from TapRide).
The 955 is a free, reservation-based ride service for Westmont students offering transportation to off-campus sites not accessed by our shuttle service for rides to/from churches, appointments, internships, jobs, the airport and train station.
MASKS REQUIRED FOR ALL RIDERS (Spring 2022)
There are 3 SERVICES: "Weekdays" and "Weekends" for rides between Montecito and SBA/Fairview area, and "Westmont/Goleta" (a few days that include hours for rides further into Goleta).
THANKSGIVING: 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. (ONLY) the Wednesday before, resuming Saturday or Sunday before classes begin (dependent on available drivers)
CHRISTMAS: service through 3:00 p.m. the Saturday after finals, resuming Saturday or Sunday before classes begin (dependent on available drivers)
SPRING BREAK: no service from Saturday before through Saturday after (dependent on available drivers)
EASTER: possible service on Good Friday and Easter Sunday (dependent on available drivers)
4-DAY WEEKENDS: service as usual (dependent on available drivers)
The 955 Operating hours: 8:30 AM - 10 PM every day
We generally have 1 van and 1 driver at any time...we try our best to accommodate all requests!
HOW TO REQUEST A RIDE:
- Download the TransLoc ride app, create your account with your Westmont login credentials.
- Requests should be made at least 1 day in advance. Scheduled rides have priority over "on demand" requests.
- The driver may combine requests to efficiently accommodate riders, so you might be asked to adjust your pick-up time.
Be ready at your pick-up/drop-off location 5-10 minutes early. Drivers make every effort to arrive at your location “ON TIME” (which can be 10 minutes before or after the requested time). Traffic can make a huge difference on timing, especially between 2-5:30 PM!
The 955 drivers reserve the right to refuse service, particularly to those who are repeatedly late or have excessive no-shows or late cancellations.
