April 2, 2017 Service Improvements

On Routes 78 and 80

April 2017 Service Improvements

Vallejo, CA – SolTrans will improve schedule times to both the SolanoExpress Route 78 that serves Diablo Valley College and Walnut Creek BART and SolanoExpress Route 80 that serves El Cerrito Del Norte BART and the San Francisco Transbay Terminal.

The Route 78 changes to the late afternoon weekday service will help improve on-time performance and better connections with Benicia’s local Route 20, Diablo Valley College and both Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek BART stations. SolTrans has added a trip starting from Diablo Valley College at 4:56 pm on weekdays to reliably serve customers departing Walnut Creek at 5:30 pm, while the existing trip departing Vallejo at 4:25 pm is moved to 4:30 pm, with a departure from Diablo Valley College at 5:06 pm and Walnut Creek at 5:40 pm.

SolTrans staff will be at the Walnut Creek BART Station on Monday, April 3, 2017 between 5 and 6 pm to remind riders about the service improvements and raffle off an Express 31-Day Pass to riders who show their current 31-Day pass or Clipper Card.

The Route 80 also received adjustments to the late afternoon weekday schedule. Southbound trips departing Vallejo will leave 5 minutes later from 4:45 pm through 7:15 pm to better connect passengers transferring to BART Transbay trains. This will also improve the reliability of northbound trips leaving Del Norte BART as drivers will have more “recovery” or turnaround time between southbound and northbound trips.
