MALIBU—The city of Malibu will hold a public ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of three new bus shelters on Wednesday, June 28 at 10 a.m., at the new shelter installed at 3835 Cross Creek Road in front of the Malibu Country Mart shopping center.

The bus shelters were part of a pilot program to make existing Metro bus stops in Malibu safer and more user-friendly for public transit users.

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

The new bus shelters were built on Cross Creek Road, Pacific Coast Highway at Heathercliff Road in the Point Dume area, and on Trancas Canyon Road at PCH in western Malibu. The new bus shelters replace the bench-only bus stops at the city’s three highest-volume transit stops.

According to the city of Malibu website, the new bus shelters increase visibility for the transit system and transit riders, provide protection from the elements, and serve as a pilot program for possible improvements to the rest of the Metro transit stops in Malibu.

The Mayor, City Councilmembers and City Commissioners will be joined by representatives from California Senator Henry Stern’s office and other area elected officials, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), and local businesses.

The public is welcome to attend the ceremony.
