  1. Please consider re-routing bus 36.

    1. please have the end of the line stop the new West Dublin/Pleasanton Bart station.

    2. please consider running the bus down Broadmore between Montevidoe and Pine Valley road and stop at Cal High

  2. Re: the above, I would ask the Planners be aware of the following 2 service changes LAVTA (Wheels)agency has proposed implementing next January 2017:
    1. Their “Rapid” route on that part of Dublin Blvd. which overlaps with the 36 will be terminating on the Dublin side of the W. Dublin Bart station instead of at the Stoneridge Mall. It will continue running every 15 minutes weekday daytime, so there will be improved connectivity opportunity at W. Dublin Bart and a small time & fuel mileage savings if the 36 were to terminate there.
    2. The North Dublin half of their route 3 will be eliminated, so this may increase ridership on both the 35 & the 36. Since the route 3 runs on Saturdays, there would be no Saturday service at all in North Dublin. Whenever funding improves, this could be an opportunity to extend the route 321 southward.
    Please reconsider. Thanks.

    1. Thank you for your comments. I’ve passed them on to the Mgr. of Planning so they will become part of the public comment documents.

    1. Hola,

      Recibimos tus comentarios en nuestro sitio Web. Lo que tenemos ahora es todo lo que sabemos en este momento.
      ¿Qué otra información se necesita?

  3. in Jan 2015, we had already attended the public hearing and submitted out representation and they have heard us. And we are awaiting action to increase the no. of trips of Route No. 35 trips via east branch/windmere especially in forenoon….
    Dear Sirs,

    We, the Senior Citizens and residents of Windmere/East Branch area, while thanking you for extending the ‘free-travel’ facility from 10 am to 2 pm in Contra Costa area for all the senior citizens, would like to bring the following to your kind notice and kind consideration.

    At present, Route No. 35 is being operated by CCCTA from Dublin/Pleasanton Bart to SanRamon Transit Centre with 6 trips from 11 to 5 pm from SRTC to Bart and 5 trips from 10.45 to 4 pm from Bart to SRTC, for the convenience of residents living in Windmere/East Branch area. It is only a diversion/extension of the existing route No. 35 in the above timings.

    We all would like to bring to your notice that the above services are very meagre and not able to cater to the needs of majority of the people in this area. Excepting the above duration(11 am to 4 pm), we are required to go to Bollinger Canyon/East Branch or Bollinger Canyon/Windmere to alight the bus by walking for 30 mts and return uphill road for 30 mts. Especially for senior citizens, this is causing lot of strain.

    For those seniors/residents who would like to go to shopping, Doctor/Labs appointments, to attend any meetings, those who want to go out by Bart and return for any work at far off distances from our area, for office goers, college and school students, and those who would like to go regularly to Livermore or other religious places, are facing lot of inconvenience in the light of limited hours/trips of operation of Route No. 35.

    In view of the above, We all would request you to kindly consider the possibility of operating a separate route bus independently on a regular basis from 6 to 9 pm. Or alternatively to atleast increase the number of trips of existing Route No. 35 from 9 am to 6 pm to East Branch/Windmere, as a temporary measure, where 300-400 house are located and sizable population is living in this area, for which we all shall be grateful to you.

    At the same, we would like to very much appreciate CCCTA’s ‘service motto’ rather than ‘Profit motto’ in operating the bus services to all the people in general.

    Thanking you,
    Yours sincerely,
    for and on behalf of Senior Citizens and residents of East Branch and Windmere area,

    Suryanarayana Alapati
    1008 Hoskins Lane, San Ramon
    CA 94582

    1. Thank you for your comments. They will be sent the Manager of Planning to be included in the public record of comments.
