At their June 7, 2021 meeting the LAVTA Board approved the Tri-Valley Hub Network Integration Study and authorized LAVTA’s Executive Director to forward the report to the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA), which had funded the study.
The goal of the Study was to provide the strategic and technical requirements to move forward toward initiating future regional transportation services via a hubbed model at the Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station and for the near-term evolution of that station into the Tri-Valley Hub as envisioned in the 2018 California State Rail Plan.
Among the Study’s conclusions:
• Move forward with implementing I-680 Express Bus service between Martinez and the Tri-Valley Hub, i.e. Dublin/Pleasanton BART
• Establish a governance structure
• Secure an operator and a funding source
• Work with operators at Dublin/Pleasanton BART to build consensus on improvements enhancing the facility’s ability to serve as a successful Tri-Valley Hub
