Public Meeting: AC Transit Line 51: Corridor Delay Reduction and Sustainability Project

Event Time: 
Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: 
Rockridge Branch Library, 5366 College Ave., 2nd floor meeting room #2

AC Transit,working with the city of Oakland Public Works Department, invites the public to a community meeting October 10 at the Rockridge Branch Library (Meeting Room 2), 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to discuss potential improvements to the Line 51A bus route throughout Oakland.

Lines 51A & 51B are two of the most heavily used bus routes in the East Bay, carrying 19,000 passengers a day in Berkeley, Oakland, and Alameda. Service has been unreliable due to bus bunching, late vehicle arrivals and overcrowded buses. AC Transit has received a $10 million grant to design and implement infrastructure modifications along the route to increase reliability and on-time performance, decrease travel time, and improve safety for AC Transit riders and pedestrians.

Improvements being considered include: bus stops improvements (lengthening, improved landing areas); bus stop relocation or elimination; intersection and traffic signal improvements; transit priority signal timing improvements; left turn pockets; bus bulbs; and others.
