ROUTE 78 Revised (2nd) Proposal

In response to public comments regarding our initial Route 78 Proposal, SolTrans’ Staff has developed a revised proposal.

We would greatly appreciate your feedback on this proposal.  All public comments received in response to this proposal will be recorded and reviewed by SolTrans’ Planning Staff, before any route changes are made.  In order to help Staff better serve you, please provide specific days and times that you travel, in your comments.

Route 78 does not currently operate on Sundays, and no plans have been made to add Sunday service (Proposed schedules on reverse).

Proposed changes include:

*Adjusted running times that will better reflect travel time and improve reliability.

*Schedule adjustments that will allow us to maintain route funding.

*Adjusted connection times to neighboring transit agencies, in response to passenger input.

*First a.m. Outbound trip, currently leaving at 5:30 a.m., will no longer be served.

* Vallejo Ferry Terminal will no longer be a Route 78 stop; the route will begin and end at the Vallejo Transit Center.  Passengers may use the new pedestrian bridge, located above the City of Vallejo Parking Garage, to access the Vallejo Ferry Terminal.

*Eliminate layover time at Pleasant Hill BART Station (This does NOT mean that the stop will not be served, just that four minutes of unnecessary wait time will be eliminated).

*Curtola Park and Ride Lot will continue to be served on Inbound trips after 9:30 a.m., exactly as it is now served.

SolTrans would greatly appreciate your feedback, on these newly proposed changes, by November 12, 2012.  Please submit your comments via one of the following formats:
