Public Meetings Begin to Evaluate New Transit Service Along Dumbarton Corridor

Public Meetings Begin to Evaluate New Transit Service Along Dumbarton Corridor

Beginning this weekend, the San Mateo County Transit District and Cross Bay Transit Partners (CBTP) will host a series of introductory meetings about the future of the Dumbarton Rail Corridor in both the East Bay and on the Peninsula. 

The Transit District and CBTP, an affiliation between Facebook and Plenary, are engaged in a public-private partnership to explore opportunities to improve transportation by establishing a new, high-quality, high-capacity public transit system along the Dumbarton corridor in the San Francisco Bay Area.  

The public meetings will acquaint the community with the project partners, and will allow the community to learn about the project background, goals, funding, timeline and process. The public is strongly encouraged to attend the meetings in order to help shape the future of regional transportation. 

The meetings will be held on the following days and locations:

Newark Meeting

Saturday, February 23, from 10:30 a.m. to noon
