OAKLAND, Calif. – The Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) announces the second installment of AC Go – AC Transit’s unprecedented expansion of service which initially launched in June 2016. In this phase, riders will experience all new Line 19 with service to the City of Alameda, extending Line 14 to the West Oakland BART station, and streamlining Line 617 to Skyline High School.
“December’s service enhancement not only embody AC Go’s commitment to placing more buses on the streets of the 22 cities and unincorporated areas of our operating district but each enhancement is rider focused,” said AC Transit Board President, H. E. Christian Peeples. “In fact, in Alameda riders requested and received three different new bus route options and it was the community that chose service along Buena Vista Avenue.”
“Nearly 200,000 daily riders traveled 215 million passenger miles this year alone,” says General Manager, Michael Hursh. “So, AC Go is a comprehensive commitment to improve on-time performance and reliability. To meet that, we will launch two other bus service enhancements in the coming months, as well as invest $25.4 million annually to support this full contingency of service enhancements.”
