Bus Stop Closure In Walnut Creek – County Connection

Bus Stop Closure In Walnut Creek

The bus stop at Boulevard Way and Iris – served by the Rt. 1 bus traveling from Rossmoor to Walnut Creek BART – will be closed effective Monday, July 30th. This stop will not be accessible long term due to construction activity at the site.

Passengers will need to use the bus stop at either Boulevard Way and Saranap, or Boulevard Way and Olympic.

  • I believe this Bus Stop is located at Boulavard Way and Kinney Dr. and is now obscured by tree leaves. Can the stop e relocated rather than be eliminated long term as it’s quite a hike to either Saranap or Olympic, with no sidewalks between Kinney Dr. and Olympic.
    I boarded Roue 1 at 558 PM last evening at N California Blvd near Cole and deboarded at Boulevard Way & Olympic. All seats were taken and even though I’m 70 years old I had to stand. I’ve seen ridership of Seniors and Caregivers on this route increase because of the “Silver Tsunami.” Can a return trip be added leaving Rossmoor at 7:33 PM arriving at WC BART at 7:50 PM? The Operator has to drive the bus back to bhe Bus Yard at CCCTA Hdq. anyhow.

    • The stop being closed due to construction is at Blvd./Iris, and I don’t believe there was an accessible alternative. I will forward your additional service request to planning/scheduling.

  • What about school routes. My kid attends WCI and the Saranap and Olympic are too far a walking distance from where we live.

    • Unfortunately there is no accessible location to put a new stop. Any new stops have to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and will require street improvements. This construction project is going to take a while (possibly a year) but we’re told that the plans include improvments for bus access. Sorry I can’t offer better news for now.
