Mission Boulevard Transit Signal Priority Project
The Mission Boulevard Corridor is a key north-south roadway located in the eastern part of Hayward and is identified as one of AC Transit’s priority, major corridors. AC Transit is implementing the Mission Boulevard Transit Signal Priority Project (Project) to improve signal systems technology at select intersections. These improvements will increase the efficiency of bus transit operations, service reliability, and travel time along the Mission Boulevard and Decoto Road corridors. Additionally, this will reduce travel time between BART stations located in Hayward and Union City.
This Project is funded by Caltrans’ Low Carbon Transit Operations Program grant. This is awarded to projects that invest in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improve transportation sustainability in communities which have been disproportionately impacted by historical transportation decisions affecting low-income and communities of color.
The Project includes 32 signals along the Mission Boulevard and Decoto Road corridors moving through the cities of Hayward and Union City, and Caltrans right-of-way. Installation work is expected to begin in Summer 2023 and conclude in early Fall 2024.

The project includes two elements:
- A) Installation of Transit Signal Priority (TSP) technology along the Project corridor. TSP on buses communicates with traffic signals and requests green light time at intersections to reduce transit delays and improve transit travel time reliability.
- B) In some locations, there is existing TSP equipment in place that needs to be upgraded. Throughout the project, a GPS-tracking TSP technology will be newly installed or upgraded, taking full advantage of the latest detection and signal timing abilities. Additionally, this project will update signal timing coordination which will provide improved detection capabilities and provide more efficient transit and traffic operations.
- Winter 2022 through Spring 2023: Finalization of Project Design

Other Related but Separate Projects in the Area
The Alameda County Transportation Commission (ACTC) is developing the East Bay Greenway Project that will traverse the cities of Oakland, San Leandro, and Hayward as well as the unincorporated communities of Ashland and Cherryland. This project is a proposed regional trail that will connect seven BART stations as well as downtown areas, schools, and other major destinations that may start towards the end of the AC Transit project. More information about that project can be found here.
