ANTIOCH, CA – Following the successful opening of the new BART stations in Antioch and Pittsburg, Eastern Contra Costa Transit Authority (Tri Delta Transit) is making changes to their bus schedule to better align with BART arrivals and departures.

“We implemented a series of changes in May when the BART Stations first opened.” Said Mike Furnary, Manager of Customer Service and Marketing. “However, we realized that additional changes and improvements needed to be made.” Over the past few months, Tri Delta Transit has been listening carefully to their customers getting feedback and suggestions of further improvements to the schedule. “We had a tremendous response to our solicitation and we believe we have prepared a schedule that better meets the needs of our community.”
All Tri Delta Transit customers are encouraged to preview the new schedule online at www.TriDeltaTransit.com<http://www.trideltatransit.com/>. “We have been alerting our customers and have had schedule previews on our web site since August 23, so they can adequately prepare for the upcoming changes,” said Furnary. Printed schedules will be available on all buses the week of September 24.
