USER GUIDE

Welcome to AC Transit Connect. This site provides online access to Board of Directors meeting information, including agendas, minutes and audio recordings as well as information about other Internal Board and Committee meetings.

AC Transit is a special district and one of only three transit agencies in the United States with an elected Board of Directors. Five members of the Board are elected from geographic areas called “wards” and two are elected to represent the entire District at-large. As the third-largest public bus system in California, AC Transit serves 13 cities and adjacent unincorporated areas in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.

Board of Directors meetings are generally held twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 5:00 p.m. in the Board Room located on the 2nd Floor of the AC Transit General Office at 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland, California. Meeting audio is generally live-streamed via the web and is available at https://actransit.legistar.com within 24 hours or less following the meeting. Public participation and input is encouraged. To stay informed of meetings and agendas, please subscribe to the Alerts (instructions are provided below).

To access agendas, staff reports and audio files for meetings that occurred before January 2019, go to the Archives tab.

You can browse AC Transit Connect via the tabs at the top of the screen:
