You may begin to see Clipper equipment on County Connection buses. Readers were recently installed on several County Connection buses as part of the testing and installation schedule. Each series of buses in the fleet – each manufactured at different times – may require variations in the placement and the wiring of equipment. Once the initial testing phase is complete the equipment will be ordered and installed on the remainder of the fleet.
All East Bay operators, which include County Connection, Tri Delta Transit (Eastern Contra Costa), Wheels (Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore), and West CAT (Western Contra Costa), will introduce Clipper at the same time. Introduction is still scheduled to take place in late 2015.
