We’re Working For You!

Reports are documents that may include EIRs (Environmental Impact Review), policy statements, proposals, surveys, and/or Title VI Programs. These are reference materials that are part of our work as we move public transportation forward into the 21st century.

Bus Parklet Design Manual

The purpose of this manual is to outline the possibilities associated with the bus parklet concept and provide guidance to prospective bus parklet sponsors, AC Transit staff, designers, and staff from local jurisdictions in AC Transit’s service area related to the design and implementation of bus parklets.

AC Transit Title VI Programs

As a designated federal funds (Federal Transit Administration) recipient, every three years AC Transit prepares a Title VI Program in accordance with FTA Circular C4702.1B (dated October 1, 2012). These Programs serves as an update to the previous Title VI Program with the purpose of assessing compliance of the District with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Title VI Analyses of Service or Fare Proposals

Whenever the AC Transit Board of Directors considers a service or fare change, they direct staff to solicit public input and to conduct an equity analysis to assess how each proposal will affect different rider populations. This Title VI analysis also determines if any of the service or fare proposals would result in disproportionately high and adverse effects on populations of people of color or low-income people within the District. If you'd like copies of other fare or service proposals not included in the list below, please contact the Title VI Administrator.

Designing With Transit: Making Transit Integral to East Bay Communities

There is a resurgence of interest in transit and in linking development to transit. Transit-oriented development has occurred throughout the East Bay and across North America. Communities across the East Bay are working to make their main streets more vital and pedestrian-friendly. East Bay cities are working with AC Transit to make their streets work optimally for bus service. Designing With Transit was written to foster and facilitate these positive trends.

Bay Bridge Corridor Congestion Study

The Bay Bridge Corridor Congestion Study estimates the future operating conditions for vehicles traveling across the Bay Bridge from Oakland into San Francisco during the peak morning commute hours. The study utilizes a microsimulation model to analyze a 24-mile freeway network that includes the Bay Bridge, the toll plaza and metering lights in Oakland, the distribution structure (“MacArthur Maze”), and segments of Interstates 80 (I-80), 580, and 880. The study predicts the severity of future vehicle queuing at the toll plaza and assesses how this congestion could affect bus service between the East Bay and the new Transbay Transit Center (TTC).

Richmond Parkway Transit Center Planning and Conceptual Design Study

The Richmond Parkway Transit Center (RPTC) is strategically located at the intersection of several major roadways, including Interstate 80, Richmond Parkway, and Blume Drive. High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes are present on Interstate 80 between the Richmond Parkway interchange and the Bay Bridge, making the RPTC an attractive location to access transit or carpools. Direct access ramps are provided from Richmond Parkway to the HOV lanes and offer time savings. The RPTC is currently served by local and express services operated by both AC Transit and WestCAT.
