On Wednesday, June 28 at 10 a.m., the City of Malibu will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of three new local bus shelters. The ceremony will be held at 3835 Cross Creek Road, Malibu, CA 90265, located in front of the Malibu Country Mart shopping center and is open to the public. 

The new bus shelters were created to make public transportation in Malibu safe, according to information provided by the city. The advantages of the new bus stops include an increased visibility of the transit system and its riders, as well as protection from natural elements for transit riders. 

“Our limited public transportation services are crucial to residents, visitors, local businesses, and their employees and customers,” Mayor Skylar Peak said, according to a City of Malibu press release. “The new bus shelters are safer, more comfortable for users and more attractive for the neighborhoods.”

The three new bus shelters replaced bench-only bus stops on Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) at Heathercliff Road in Point Dume, on Cross Creek Road, and at Trancas Canyon Road at PCH in Western Malibu. These three bus stops are the highest volume transit stops in the City of Malibu and are the first of many transit stops for possible improvements. The mayor, City Council members and commissioners, as well as Senator Henry Stern’s representatives, other area elected officials, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and local businesses will attend the ceremony.
