Wednesday, April 25th, the AC Transit Board of Directors will hold a public hearing to consider certifying the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) and to receive input on a locally preferred alternative for the East Bay Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.
The BRT line would connect Berkeley, Oakland and San Leandro, running along Telegraph Avenue, Broadway, International Boulevard, and East 14thStreet.
The alternatives being studied are:
- A 14.4-mile BRT line connecting Berkeley, Oakland, and San Leandro. The northern terminus would be near the Berkeley BART station and in the south at the San Leandro BART station.
- The other alternative is a 9.5-mile BRT line connecting Oakland and San Leandro, with a northern terminus at the Uptown Transit Center (20th Street & Broadway) and the southern one at the San Leandro BART station.
The hearing will be held from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., and from 5:00 p.m. to at least 6:30 p.m. (it will extend if necessary) at the AC Transit General Offices, 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland.
