Welcome

We’re working to improve transit in East County

Through the study, we hope to identify solutions for improving transit service between Antioch and Brentwood. This study is expected to take two years and is funded through a Caltrans grant.

Why transit?

Why transit?

Why study transit, and why now?

East County's population is growing! East County's population has grown by over 100,000 people in the past decade. There has also been a surge in super-commuters – people whose commute is more than 90 minutes per day. To support our residents, commuters, and visitors, we’ve decided to take a closer look at how people travel through the SR-4 corridor.

Study Milestones

Where we’re going

We started with a careful inventory of things like bus routes, BART connections and schedules, and facilities for people walking/rolling and biking. Now we are identifying gaps in service that we hope to fill. We will identify potential solutions based on those gaps and our desire to provide you with seamless and easy travel in East County.
