Transit Talks

Welcome to the AC Transit Talks webpage—your one stop destination for finding information about our community gatherings.

What is "Transit Talks"?

Transit Talks is a series of community update meetings featuring AC Transit Board Directors and staff. Transit Talks is a way for AC Transit to connect and communicate directly with the people who live, work, or travel within our service areas. We’re kicking off Transit Talks with virtual meetings that are scheduled according to geographical areas. The purpose of these meetings is to provide community updates on bus service, health and safety initiatives, projects and most importantly --- to meet and hear from you! 

When are the meetings?

Transit Talks will be held from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm on the dates below that are specific to geographical areas:
