Your Route, Your Voice: Share Your Feedback with AC Transit’s Realign Draft Plan

AD18 Banner AC Transit

Dear Friends,

In case you missed it, an important year-long project has been AC Transit’s Realign Plan working to update the bus lines and schedules that will affect riders within our District and the greater East Bay. While it's an honor to represent crucial public transit and community hubs serviced by BART, AC Transit, and Paratransit, public input and feedback remain essential. Your perspectives play a pivotal role, especially when it comes to projects that propose changes to routes and lines in our public transportation network, which our community relies on.

To learn more about the potential impacts it’ll have on ridership:

To get involved directly, participate with AC Transit for a community workshop and Public Board of Directors meeting to provide your public comments and learn more:

Lastly, provide your feedback on the proposed bus line and schedule changes in this survey, available in Chinese or Spanish, for AC Transit to read and consider! As we move into summer, please do not hesitate to contact my district office for assistance with state services, to share your thoughts on legislation, or to get involved in local initiatives. Your engagement and support are vital to our collective success in the District.

Yours in Service,
