Save Your Bus! Take AC Transit's Survey

Save Your Bus! Take AC Transit's Survey

Like other public transit agencies, AC Transit is undergoing severe budget problems. With the elimination of state assistance for operations like salaries, maintenance, and gas they are looking at 15% service cuts just to stay afloat. They are asking riders to take a short survey to help them prioritize routes and to decide how and where to cut. This survey was also given out at the recent series of community meetings on service reductions.

Albany Traffic Safety Commission

WHERE: Albany Community Center - Edith Stone Room
1249 Marin Avenue

EBBC and Albany Strollers & Rollers strongly endorse studying the Buchanan Cleveland/Underpass alternative. Existing proposed alternatives have more conflicts with traffic between San Pablo Ave and overcrossing to the Bay Trail. The USDA facility has been a barrier to creating the most appealing path option.
