East County Integrated Transit Study

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. The general area being studied is illustrated in the map below.

A grant of $775,000 from the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will be 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.

Public Outreach

Community feedback was an important part of this study from the very beginning. We held three virtual open houses and conducted two surveys of our target audiences to learn as much as we could about what factors influence public transit ridership, our resident’s level of satisfaction with the transit that is available, and what alternatives our residents liked best.

Our first open house ran from October 13, 2020 – February 15, 2021, the second one from August 13- September 27, 2021 and the third one from November 5, 2021-January 14, 2022. The materials shared during each of these online open house sessions is provided below, as well as a summary fact sheet of all outcomes from these efforts.
