Welcome to AVSTA

Antelope Valley Schools Transportation Agency 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 Joint Powers Authority (JPA) is a union between two or more public entities with common interests, whose purpose is to join forces and share resources.

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 11 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.
