(ACTION)

Approve AC Transit's Transbay Tomorrow Cost Neutral Proposal for Alameda


Background

AC Transit staff has requested to return to the Transportation Commission to clarify its proposal for Alameda, which is not only a cost neutral short-term plan for the near future but actually is an increase in daily revenue hours.
AC Transit's Transbay Tomorrow plan aims to develop and implement service improvements on the Bay Bridge Transbay network. As AC Transit prepares to move into the new Salesforce Transit Center and to begin double decker bus operations in 2018, they want to make sure their service meets existing demands to prepare for future changes and service expansions. Exhibit 2 summarizes the cost neutral service proposal themes that AC Transit considered, and will consider expansion plan scenarios later this year assuming Regional Measure 3 is approved in June.
AC Transit operates three Transbay lines in Alameda that travel between the San Francisco temporary transbay terminal and different parts of Alameda. These three lines are described as follows and summarized in Exhibit 1:
* Line O runs from San Francisco to Oakland at 7th Street/Alice Street and then through the Webster/Posey tubes, Webster Street, Santa Clara Avenue, Encinal Avenue, High Street, Fernside Blvd. and Fruitvale BART. Line O has a 10 minute frequency during the peak times and a one hour frequency during the off-peak times. As of Spring 2017, the average weekday Transbay boardings on Line O totaled over 1,000.

* Line OX runs from San Francisco to the Park Street bridge, Park Street, Encinal Avenue, High Street, Bay Farm bridge, Robert Davey Junior Drive, Aughinbaugh Way, Mecartney Road, Maitland Drive and Island Drive. Line OX has up to a 10 minute frequency during the peak times and does not run in the off-peak times....
