In March 2010, AC Transit implemented a District-wide comprehensive service restructuring that was estimated to provide annualized savings of $10.34 Million. At that time, service was reduced by approximately 162,000 annual platform hours, which represented a 7.7% reduction in service from prior levels. Unfortunately, the District’s financial situation has not yet improved, which required staff to assess of an additional round of service reductions. As a part of other cost-reductions measures currently underway, the District Finance Department estimates a $56 Million shortfall, of which, $11.44 Million must come from service reductions. As a result, staff proposed to reduce the annualized service reductions to approximately 137,000 hours, representing a 7.2% service reduction.
