AC Transit Board Hearing September 9th on Lines 46L, 800, 801 & 822

Posted on August 15, 2015 at 10:25 AM

The AC Transit Board of Directors will be holding a public hearing September 9th to discuss proposed changes, extensions, and eliminations of Lines 46L, 800, 801, and 822.

Line 46L:

The Board will consider the continuation of Line 46L next year, which is a one-year pilot beginning in December of 2014. The line parallels Route 46, traveling from Coliseum BART to the Oakland Zoo with limited stops, and continues along Golf Links Road to Dunkirk Avenue in Grass Valley.

Line 800:

The Board will discuss the possibility of making weekend service on the 800 between the 16th Street & 24th Street BART Stations, with buses every 15, 20 or 30 minutes apart, permanent. The Downtown Oakland - Richmond section will continue to operate every 30 minutes.

Line 801:

The Board is considering permanent weekend service to Line 801 as well. From Downtown Oakland to Bay Fair BART will operate at 20 or 30-minute frequency, and from Bay Fair BART to Fremont BART will operate every 60 minutes.

Line 822:

Funded by BART, Line 822 is also a one-year pilot, also beginning in December 2014. This interesting line travels from 24th Street BART to Pittsburg/Bay Point BART, stopping at the following BART & MUNI Stations:

  • 16th Street/Mission
  • Van Ness
  • Civic Center
  • Powell
  • Montgomery
  • Embarcadero
  • 12th Street/Oakland City Center
  • Rockridge
  • Walnut Creek
  • Pleasant Hill

The line is designed to serve weekend riders after the BART System closes for the night. However, despite substantial amounts of advertising and publicity, the line suffers from very low ridership, leading to the recommendation of elimination of Line 822.
