Time Saved By East Bay BRT

How much time would the BRT plan that we are backing save for bus riders?

AC Transit's Major Investment Study says: "Enhanced Bus would provide 10 to 15 percent better travel time than existing AC Transit bus services. BRT would provide an additional 15 to 25% travel time improvement over Enhanced Bus. LRT [light rail] would provide only a 2 to 10 percent improvement over BRT." (page 27.)

Overall, BRT would reduce travel time by 25% to 35%.

Thanks to Rob Wrenn for providing these figures.
