Purpose of this report, a summary of 3 individual consultant studies, was to analyze the need for local and feeder transit services in the East Bay communities of Contra Costa County, Livermore-Amador Valley, and the Tri-Cities of Fremont, Newark, and Union City, California. These 3 areas are inside the BART District but outside of the service area of the Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit). In each of the 3 study areas, similar findings and recommendations were made. Recommendations include: transit service along the major corridors should be developed and expanded; local service by itself would not significantly reduce the dominance of the auto; and local transit should be provided to serve the limited mobility population. Feeder and local services were recommended. These systems proposed include conventional bus routes, flexibly routed buses and demand activated bused (dial-a-bus). In addition to dial-a-bus services in the Contra Costa study area, electrically powered, publicly owned automobiles (PAS) were recommended for development. Report also provides an overview of the Bay Area setting for these studies, reviews need for transit, summarizes recommendations regarding transit alternatives, gives a brief overview of impacts of transit alternatives, and describes the implementation procedures, including the institutional, financial, and management arrangements. Maps, charts, tables, illustrations and appendices are included. /UMTA/
