AMG staff collaborated with Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA), Contra Costa County and the Cities of Pittsburg, Antioch, Brentwood, and Oakley to conduct an East County Feasibility Study to evaluate a Dynamic Personal Micro Transit (DPMT) service to enhance transit accessibility, connectivity, and development along the Northern Waterfront business area. The proposed project would provide the community and residents in East Contra Costa County with a blueprint and roadmap to implement DPMT infrastructure and services in a public-private partnership (p3) over time as funding becomes available.

AMG staff led the feasibility study, strategic planning, visioning, needs assessment, technology options evaluation, route mapping, and business case feasibility activities through Joint workshops with stakeholders. Work on the study began September 2020 and was completed spring 2021. Subsequently the study findings were approved by the City Councils of Antioch, Brentwood, Pittsburg, and Oakley, and the Tri-Delta Transit Board.

After extensive industry outreach and stakeholder engagement, CCTA, in collaboration with Tri Delta Transit, recently procured a P3 Developer Team to advance the project. The P3 Developer contract was awarded in July 2023, and the team is currently reviewing and validating the assumptions from the Study, including ridership forecasts, capital and operating costs and operating parameters for the system. Concurrent with the validation of the Study assumptions, the team will develop a funding plan to advance an initial deployment phase of the DPMT and an implementation plan for future phases.
