Conservative estimates suggest that upwards of 8,000 people commute from the Antelope Valley (AV) to the Santa Clarita Valley each day, whether for work or to attend College of the Canyons. However, there is no direct bus line that services these individuals to their workplace. In a recent survey conducted by the Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC), 55% of these commuters are making the drive alone, which is both costly and adds to traffic congestion.
A key factor in attracting the talent a company needs to achieve its goals is, as they say, location, location, location. The Santa Clarita Valley (SCV) delivers on this requirement, allowing its businesses to attract and retain the key personnel they need, making it a good location for business. The SCV delivers options for a great lifestyle, particularly in health and safety.
