Telephone Town Hall November 12, 6PM
Nov 9, 2015 at 10:14am
Don't miss out! Join us via phone on Thursday, November 12, 6PM, as we discuss the future of West County transportation.
West Contra Costa County residents have long been asking for more transit options and enhancements to existing services. Now, the West County High-Capacity Transit Study is evaluating new public transportation options and funding opportunities to expand alternatives to driving on congested corridors.
High-capacity transit provides substantially higher passenger capacity than local transit. It is the type of transit that people often use for their daily commute to work. The West Contra Costa Transportation Advisory Committee and the Contra Costa Transportation Authority will hold a joint Telephone Town Hall Call-In Event to talk about the West County High-Capacity Transit Study and other transportation improvements in West County:

WCCTAC is proud to be a lead partner in the West County High-Capacity Transit Study. The study will evaluate public transportation options and identify funding opportunities to expand transit service and access for the more than 250,000 residents of west Contra Costa County. The Study’s final proposal will identify one or more projects to improve the quality and effectiveness of transit in West County, expand alternatives to driving on congested streets and highways, and improve regional air quality.
In addition to taking a fresh look at the origins and destinations of people who live or work in West County, the Study will also examine how to encourage transit use and improve service to underserved communities.
The Study is sponsored by the West Contra Costa Transportation Advisory Committee (WCCTAC), the Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART), and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC). Other key partners include the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit), the Capitol Corridor Joint Powers Authority (CCJPA/Amtrak), the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and the Western Contra Costa Transit Authority (WestCAT).
