      • Can you please bring back Route 2. I am independent. And rely on route 2. And it is very difficult for me to get places without it. My parents told me that they can’t pick up me everyday. And lyft is getting expensive for my family. And I don’t want to take the link. I am so fortunate that I live across the street from the bus stop.

  • Please bring back
    – free rides 10 am to 2pm
    – route 36
    – I always ride 95X from San Ramon Transit Center to transfer to 98X at 9:03 at Walnut Creek BART. 96X makes me miss the transfer. if route 95X eliminated, can you plan a better 96X schedule to transfer to route 98X at Walnut Creek BART To Armtrak , current arrival time of 96X , 9:02 am does not work out in time for transfer.
    – I will be very happy to ride new route 335 on weekend, I have been waiting for this to happen for years
    Thank you for listening.

  • I agree with the person above about coordinating your schedules to allow reasonable transfer times to the 98X going to/from the Amtrak Station in Martinez.

  • Having the 96X terminate at the transit center will greatly inconvenience those of us that work 2600 Camino Ramon. Also inconvenienced are the many visitors to the conference center at 2600. Imagine having to attend an all day conference and having to walk from the transit center to 2600 in the rain and then sit through it soaking wet?

    • Hi Noelle, The 96X will continue to stop at 2600 Camino Ramon. The new routing will stop at Chevron, Bishop Ranch 1, 2600 Camino Ramon, and the Transit Center. Should you have further questions or comments, feel free to reach out!

  • I would be happy to have weekend routes. Like proposed 335.
    Weekend routes will help us to ditch our cars and travel by bus.

    • The 96X would not stop at Annabel Lane. However, the proposed alignment for 97X would stop at Annabel Lane.
