Bay Area Healthy Transit Plan
County Connection, Tri Delta Transit, WestCAT, AC Transit, San Francisco Bay Ferry, and BART have all introduced measures to ensure a safe operating environment for passengers and staff. These measures include touchless fare payment, frequent cleaning, face mask requirements, and physical distancing. Passengers can do their part by wearing masks, washing their hands frequently, and allowing adequate space between their fellow passengers.

Tri MyRide: On-Demand Neighborhood Shuttle Service
Available in the Hillcrest (Antioch) and San Marco (Pittsburg) neighborhoods
Tri Delta Transit offers on-demand shuttle service to two neighborhoods: Hillcrest in Antioch and San Marco in Pittsburg.
To use the service, riders first download the Tri MyRide app, then use it to schedule their pickup. The shuttles serve BART and local shopping areas, so a scheduled trip must either start or end at one of those designated locations. This means someone could be picked up at home and taken to BART, or be picked up at a shopping area and taken to anyplace in the neighborhood service area.
The shuttle runs 5am-9pm Monday-Friday and is $2 per trip or free with a valid Tri Delta Transit Pass. For more details, visit TriMyRide.com.
