County Court System to offer Needles Residents services August 1

VVTA Route 200 Needles Link Bus at Victorville Transfer Point

Hesperia, Calif. (July 14, 2016) – Beginning August 1, 2016, the Superior Court of California, County of San Bernardino, Barstow District, will begin hearing Small Claims, Traffic, and Landlord Tenant matters from the Needles jurisdiction. The court is scheduling hearing dates for Needles residents to coincide with Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) Route 200 Needles Link, which provides Friday bus service between Needles, Barstow, and Victorville.

The collaborative effort between San Bernardino Superior Court, VVTA, and San Bernardino County 1st District Supervisor Robert Lovingood is part of an ongoing effort to restore services that were reduced due to the state budgetary constraints of recent years.

“It’s great to begin rebuilding the region and connecting residents to essential services,” said Lovingood. “Through launching this service last month, we learned the value of these connections. The route opens up new options for medical, dental, social, and retail services. For veterans, elderly, and children on Medi-Cal, there are no dental services available in Needles. School teachers have shared with us how this bus service bridges that gap between Needles and these readily available services in Barstow.”

“For residents with limited transportation, the route offers independence,” said VVTA Board Chair Barb Stanton. “Needles Link delivers access to opportunities that do not yet exist in that region of California. For a reasonable fare, residents can now access major grocery stores, shopping centers, and medical services in Barstow and the Victor Valley.”

VVTA Route 200 provides round-trip service that begins in Needles with curb pickup for Needles residents who have made advanced reservations. The bus departs the G Street stop near the Needles Chamber of Commerce at 6:15 a.m. It arrives at the Barstow Library near the Barstow Court House at 9:30 a.m., the stop across from the Victorville Court House at 10:15 a.m. and the Victorville Transfer Point at 10:30 a.m., where connecting service to San Bernardino is available via VVTA Route 15 B-V Link for an additional fare. The return trip departs the Victorville Transfer Point at 2:30 p.m., the Victorville Court House at 2:45 p.m., the Barstow Library a 4 p.m., and arrives at G Street in Needles at 7:15 p.m.

Last week, Needles Link provided round-trip service for 12 passengers. Seating is limited. Reservations are recommended and may be scheduled from two weeks in advance to the day prior to service before 5 p.m. Needles residents may reserve curb-to-curb pick up and drop off service within city limits.

Regular one-way fare is $12. Discount fare is available to veterans, those 60-years of age or older, and those with disabilities. Up to three children age five and under may ride free per adult fare. The $6 discount fare requires identification. Needles Link fare media may be used as fare on VVTA and Barstow Fixed Route and County Route buses on the same day of purchase at no additional charge. Carry-ons are limited to two packages and must remain in passenger lap or under seat.

All Needles Small Claims and Landlord Tenant case cases filed prior to August 1, 2016 will remain assigned to the Joshua Tree Courthouse. For more information, contact the Court Executive Office at 909-708-8746.

(June 15, 2016) – Victor Valley Transit Authority (VVTA) is announcing a new bus route, designated the “Needles Link” which will be providing transportation from Needles, to Barstow and Victorville, on Fridays, beginning June 17th.  The route is in response to a request from the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors Vice Chair, Robert Lovingood. Lovingood says, “The Needles Link is a cost-effective local solution for veterans, seniors and the general public.” He adds that the new route, “is an innovative way to help desert residents deal with the state’s funding cuts to courts in Needles and Barstow.” The reason for the Friday route is that courts have agreed to create a special Needles Calendar; most cases will be scheduled on Fridays.
