Why we have Construction Access Permits

The purpose of Construction Access Permits (CAP) is to protect AC Transit property, facilities, services, staff, and the public by establishing conditions and standards for access, construction, or other related activities on or adjacent to AC Transit facilities and for AC Transit to recover the associated costs of providing that protection.

When is a Construction Access Permit Required

A Construction Access Permit is required prior to entering or commencing any work located within AC Transit property, on or adjacent to any AC Transit asset, or any work within 10-feet of any AC Transit fiber optic cable.  A CAP is also required prior to commencing any work that is adjacent to any AC Transit facility or asset that may impact traffic flow or the ingress/egress to any AC Transit facility or asset.
