East County Integrated Transit Study (ECITS)
Since Highway 4 has been significantly upgraded, access to the eastern part of Contra Costa County (East County), which includes the cities of Antioch, Brentwood, Discovery Bay, Oakley, Pittsburg, and the unincorporated areas, has been improved. CCTA now wishes to enhance transportation options with a $775,000 grant received from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to evaluate the need for and current state of connections to BART, rail, and ferry services.
Planning for the Future of Mobility in East County
East County, the eastern part of Contra Costa County that includes Antioch, Brentwood, Discovery Bay, Oakley, Pittsburg, and the unincorporated areas, is an expanding area of economic growth. More mobility options are needed to keep and promote this area’s vitality and to connect it to the rest of the county and the Bay Area.
A grant from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) was used to evaluate the need for and current state of transportation services in East County. Included in the study is an assessment of how to incorporate the planned new transportation hub at Brentwood. The goal is to develop a plan that will provide service to all citizens in keeping with CCTA’s mission to protect the environment while providing high-capacity, fast, and frequent services.
