Proposal for SolTrans Service Changes

  1. 1. Proposal for SolTrans Service Changes Leon Bacud●Fleet consolidation●Address changes to Routes 2, 7 and 85 tomake them more efficient.●Sunday Service reductions on Routes 80●Route suggestions for Benicia●Frequency reductions on all routes.●Transfers and Day Passes
  2. 2. SolTrans fleet consolidation SolTrans now has a combined fleet of buses from two former transit agencies. As a singleagency, it could use these buses in ways theywerent able to be used before. For example: shuttle vans, once used for Benicia public routes, now can be used in Vallejo for non- peak routes.
  3. 3. Proposed Changes to Route 7● Reduce peak hour traffic congestion on North Ascot Parkway● Serve Solano College students living in East Vallejo● Provide a safe transfer to Route 2 at Target
  4. 4. Proposed Changes to Route 7
  5. 5. During peak hours, supplemental schoolroutes, as well as Route 7, use a bus stop on N. Ascot Parkway
  6. 6. Routing 7 to Solano College will Serve West Vallejo Students
  7. 7. The location of this bus stop blocks traffic for bothbicyclists as well as right-lane traffic. This congests after- school traffic flow from Jesse Bethel High School.
  8. 8. Proposed Changes To Route 2● Serve Solano College for West Vallejo● Serve Jesse Bethel High for West Vallejo● Provide a Safe Transfer to Route 7 at Target
  9. 9. Proposed Changes to Route 2
  10. 10. Moving the Route 2 (and tripper stops) to Redwood solves traffic problems.
  11. 11. Transfer point at Target provides a safer alternative to Gateway Plaza
  12. 12. Caveats to SolTrans Proposals● If Route 2 is routed to serve Solano College before Target, Route 7 riders will not be able to transfer at Target in order to arrive at the College. Instead, they will need to transfer at VTC; exponentially lengthening their trip.
  13. 13. Sunday Service on Route 80/85● The Route 80 and 85 are the main connections and SolTrans and Napa Vine riders have with the rest of the Bay Area.● I strongly propose reducing Sunday service to a single Route 80 bus. This allows for hourly service.● Route 85 currently serves Westfield and Business Center Drive only. I recommend establishing Dial-a-Ride service to these locations.
  14. 14. Route Suggestions for Benicia● Suggest County Connection take over Route 76.● Convert routes 21 and 22 into fixed routes that make only two peak hour runs.● Merge 21 and 22 into one fixed looping route that makes only two peak hour runs.
  15. 15. Frequency Reductions On All Routes● If SolTrans aims to reduce costs, why are they proposing to increase frequency at the cost of evening service hours? In order to preserve the current final departure times, I urge you to reduce all local routes to hourly service, with selective runs at peak hours.● A suggestion would be to divide route departure times from VTC between x:00 and x:30.
  16. 16. Transfers and Day Passes● To avoid inconvenience for those transferring to buses outside of the SolTrans system, as well as those not able to buy a day-pass at VTC, I recommend following suit with AC Transit by charging an additional fee for a transfer slip.● For those wishing to use 10-ride passes, incorporate the fee for the transfer with the cost of the pass, and allow the rider to receive a transfer as soon as the pass is punched.
