Increase in Traffic Congestion on Contra Costa County Freeways

Have you noticed an increase in traffic?

​A recent study​ indicates delays caused by ​congestion increased about 10% from 2015 to 2016.  Going back as far as 2010, congestion has increased by 80%.

​Three major freeways in Contra Costa County made the top 10 worse commutes in 2016​: I-680, Hwy. 24 and Hwy. 4.

Did you know that County Connection has bus service in these areas?

​If you’re traveling along I-680, we offer Express Service to: Bishop Ranch, Walnut Creek BART, Pleasanton Train Station (ACE), Dublin BART and Martinez Amtrak.

In Orinda and Lafayette there is bus service serving Orinda, Lafayette, and Moraga areas, as well as a connecting bus from Lafayette BART to Walnut Creek BART.

The dreaded Highway 4 commute has options as well depending on where you are going.  Many buses start at Amtrak in downtown Martinez, connecting to several BART stations.

With the increase in traffic and no solution to lower congestion, the most affordable way to get around is using County Connection buses.

All County Connection buses are equipped with wheelchair access, free wi-fi, Clipper, and bike racks.  Bus Tracker and Realtime information is also available using your smart phone.

For more information, contact Customer Service at 925-676-7500.  Customer Service is open Monday to Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
