Potential Service Reductions - December 1, 2020

Due to COVID-19, many transit agencies throughout the Bay Area face varying degrees of financial uncertainty and must evaluate cost-cutting measures in order to remain financially viable. These are tough decisions and we want your input. The Central Contra Costa Transit Authority (County Connection) will conduct virtual meetings in the coming months to inform the public of potential service cuts. The first meeting will provide a general overview of the impact COVID-19 has had on funding levels, the current service profile and three scenarios for potential service reductions.  This meeting is scheduled via Zoom on December 1, 2020 at 5:00pm. Subsequent meetings will be scheduled in January, dates to be determined. Please check the County Connection website on a regular basis to stay informed.

Members of the public are encouraged to participate remotely via Zoom at the following link or phone number. Members of the public participating by Zoom wishing to speak should use the “raise hand” feature or dial *9. In order to get the full Zoom experience, please make sure your application is up to date.
