East Bay Commuting

Up ]

Commuting from East Bay - Richmond bus and Driving Incentives:

For affordable housing we need to subsidize monthly rental from around $1,500 to around $700 per month. For 1000 homes that's $800 x 12 x 1000 = $9.6 million PER YEAR!!!

How do we get 1000 to commute from East Bay instead?

Well first WE HAVE TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

1. All jobs at the medium and lower level could be advertised in North East-Bay papers, paid for by Marin Governments and businesses. In addition Bus schedule and Free Travel offers would be advertised.


2 . The
bus route extended to continue to other parts of Marin beyond San Rafael

3 . To accomodate 1000 commuters during 1 1/2 hour peak period; a
bus leaves every 5 minutes

4 . Every other
bus does an express route stopping only at the most used stops

5. To offer an easier commute for those employed further from the bus stop and also encourage biking:- all
buses could have around 1/3 of their seating removed to make room for bikes.

6. For East Bay, Marin-working drivers, of lower income, commuting over the bridge:- Not only a Free bridge pass but
gas mileage rebates.

7. more?


And the cost of all this?
Still MILLIONS of $s LESS THAN SUBSIDIZING AFFORDABLE HOUSING

Only 4 buses at commute times and from BART Parking Lots (that are already fully occupied) !
Why are we not catering to residents of Richmond ? -- with a COMMUTE TIME Bus Service of every 5 minutes !
Eliminate the 19 bus routes outside of Peak and employ bus drivers that have 2 jobs. Give them a job between driving from El Cerrito to SR and driving back from SR to El Cerrito ! 
(This will not be a problem with Autonomous Buses)
Yes !  THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX !   GET THOSE jobs advertised in Richmond!

Annual Ridership by Route

40 --  56,388 -- about 225/day

42 -- 213,250 - about 850/day

Oct 11th 2015 http://www.marinij.com/general-news/20151011/golden-gate-transit-modifies-service-across-richmond-san-rafael-bridge

Bus Routes 40 and 42 to merge and create a new Route 580 as a nine-month demonstration project. Route 580 will provide service from Emeryville, Berkeley and Albany to San Rafael during commute hours and start in December.

Serving some big employment centers in Marin County including the expanding BioMarin facility at the San Rafael Corporate Center.

Will operate during weekday commute periods only, every 30 minutes, with service on five westbound trips in the morning and five eastbound trips in the afternoon.


Route 580 - Berkeley, Emeryville and Oakland and work in Marin

Route 580 is estimated to carry 220 passengers per day, or an average of 22 passengers per trip. The route will operate along Hollis Street, Ashby Avenue, San Pablo Avenue and Buchanan Street through Emeryville, Berkeley and Albany.

Route 580 will be similar to Route 40 in Marin County, but it will also serve the portion of Andersen Drive previously served by Route 42.

Routes 40 & 42 operate between San Rafael Transit Center and El Cerrito del Norte BART Station as a single combined service. Route 40 provides faster service with direct regional connections, while Route 42 provides slower service with additional local stops.

Service on Route 40 began in March 1993, with service significantly expanded within Richmond in September 2001. The expanded service was later designated as Route 42 in June 2002. But the larger coverage area within Richmond never developed strong ridership.

Routes 40 and 42 combined currently provide 53 trips per weekday and 32 trips on weekend days. The new Route 40 schedule will provide 55 trips per weekday and 32 trips per weekend day.
