Neighbors from Lafayette/Walnut Creek to San Ramon, as the Iron Horse neighbors, have met in casual discussions of how to create rapid transportation systems in the 24/680 corridors. In reviewing rapid bus transportation systems, our neighbors concluded that feeder/express bus systems using 24/680 corridors would compliment BART, ACE and other rapid transit with fast delivery to and from corridor destinations and express stations.
In most rapid bus system studies, the results were only changes in routing for existing bus systems and reduction in costs of operations. Smaller, alternative-fueled feeder buses reduced costs of operation and removed large buses and their noise from neighborhoods.
We invite commentary on this forum to better understand the interests of all neighbors in the region.
