Route 72, 72R and 72M Passengers Needed

Participate in a 90-minute focus group to discuss transit improvements on San Pablo Avenue and receive a $100 Clipper Card!

WCCTAC and the Alameda County Transportation Commission is looking for thirty (30) Route 72, 72R and/or 72M passengers to participate in one of two 90-minute focus groups where participants will discuss the kind of improvements they would like to see on San Pablo Avenue to make taking the bus safer and more reliable and convenient.

Those selected to participate will receive a $100 Clipper card.

One meeting will be for passengers who board in the cities of San Pablo, Richmond or El Cerrito; the other for those who catch the bus in Albany, Berkeley, Emeryville or Oakland.  Both meetings will be accessible by the Route 72, 72R and/or 72M. 

We are interested in talking with passengers from all cultures, but please be advised that the focus groups will be held in English.  

Alameda County meeting: Tuesday, March 27, 2018, 6-7:30pm at a location served by the Route 72 & 72M (and 2 blocks from a 72R stop)

Contra Costa County meeting: Thursday, April 12, 2018, 6:30-8pm at a location served by the Route 72, 72M & 72R

These meetings are part of the San Pablo Avenue Corridor Project, an effort to develop long term and short-term concepts aimed at improving the safety and experience of all San Pablo Avenue users, from the City of San Pablo to Oakland.  The feedback we hear at these focus groups will help ensure that the project considers the needs of AC Transit passengers.

To ensure that we hear from a diverse group of riders, we’re using a brief survey to help us select the 30 passengers who will participate, and will receive a $100 Clipper card.  If you routinely ride the Route 72, 72R or 72M and are available the date and time of the applicable focus group, please click here to take the survey.
