About Us:

Antelope Valley Schools Transportation Agency (AVSTA) currently serves four member districts including Antelope Valley Union High School District, Keppel Union School District, Lancaster School District, and Westside Union School District. AVSTA provides transportation for regular education, special needs education and field trips.

AVSTA has an employee base of 200 working as Office Staff, Shop Personnel, Trainers, or Bus Drivers. We transport over 6,000 students per day on 87 special needs routes and 52 regular education routes on our fleet of 200 buses which travel over 3 million miles per year.


Our History:

Antelope Valley Schools Transportation was formed on July 1, 1980 following a feasibility study regarding forming a Joint Powers Authority (JPA) by the following districts: Antelope Valley Union High School District, Gorman School District, Hughes-Elizabeth Lakes School District, Keppel Union School District, Lancaster School District, Palmdale School District, Westside Union Elementary School District and Wilsona School District.

The original location of AVSTA was at Antelope Valley High School. In 1988 construction was completed on our current facility located at 670 West Avenue L-8 in Lancaster, CA.

One of the Agency's major successes has been the ability to obtain grants worth over 8 million dollars since 1993, to obtain new school buses and fueling infrastructure. This has resulted in reduced costs to each district and the mitigation of Antelope Valley air pollution.

A JPA is a union created between two or more public entities with common interests whose purpose is to join forces to share resources. To learn more about JPA's visit this reference.


Our Mission:

To provide safe, reliable, timely, and cost effective transportation for the students of the Antelope Valley.
