TRANSBAY

SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY

       As of December 1st, 2019, there are 27 different official governing transportation

agencies within the 9 county San Francisco Bay Area. Within just one county, like Contra

Costa County, there are different operating bus agencies depending on where you live (AC

Transit, WestCAT, County Connection, and Tri-Delta Transit). There are political reasons

why transportation in the Bay Area is complex, but the politics of transit is not something

an every-day rider on any of these services cares about. They care about getting from point

A to point B. Having so many governing agencies creates a lot of issues that could be

avoided if all of them worked as one. Dealing with transfers is the biggest pain-point as

well as the inconsistent pricing. While Clipper is a step in the right direction, it is not the

ideal solution.

       To fix this incredibly complex tangled mess requires a lot more than what we can do

at this time. My goal is to create a visual world where every one of those agencies is

re-branded into one governing transportation agency. I want you to visualize a world where

you don’t have to wait until the bus is 5 feet away to know if it is the rapid bus or the

regular— a place where transfers between multi-modes of transportation are seamless

and planning a trip through transit makes sense and is not a headache. I, along with many

others in the Bay Area, are envisioning this world class transportation network. One that

takes you seamlessly from point A to point B or point D to point U.

       Welcome to a world with the San Francisco Bay Area Transportation Authority or

TRANSBAY for short. In service of the residents of all 9 Bay Area counties (Alameda,

Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco San Mateo, Santa Clara, Solano, Sonoma) and

beyond.
