Free Rides on Routes 11, 14, & 16 (Monday-Friday)

Starting Monday, July 1, 2019, all rides on Routes 11, 14, and 16 will be FREE for an entire year!

County Connection is offering free rides on three of its weekday bus routes – Routes 11, 14, and 16 – as part of a one-year pilot program starting on Monday, July 1, 2019. All three routes serve the Monument Corridor in Concord and connect from Concord BART to various destinations in Martinez, Pleasant Hill, and Walnut Creek, including BART stations, Martinez Amtrak and Contra Costa Regional Medical Center.

The pilot project is being funded by a grant through California’s Low Carbon Transit Operations Program (LCTOP), which distributes cap-and-trade proceeds to support a wide range of programs and projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and deliver other economic, environmental, and public health benefits for Californians.
