AC Transit on Monday will begin a three-week pilot program in which it will use a 42-foot-long, double-decker bus on selected longer routes in its service area in 13 cities and surrounding areas in Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
It seems like trains and buses are more packed than ever. But overall, the Bay Area is actually depending less on public transit.
Levi’s Stadium was designed with mass transit in mind, and the 49ers are banking on heavy use of public transit on game days.
The inaugural 49ers season will provide a blueprint for how to move tens of thousands of football fans between downtown San Francisco and the new stadium in Santa Clara during Super Bowl 50, event planners said Thursday.
Santa Clara County transit officials said they expect as many as 25-percent of fans that go to Levi’s Stadium for 49ers games and other events to take public transit.
Starting in 2014, the program that allows Bay Area commuters to use pre-tax dollars from their paychecks to pay for transit and commuting will be slashed nearly in half.

Bay Area Rapid Transit workers took a significant step closer Wednesday to a train stoppage that would affect hundreds of thousands of daily commuters, prompting transportation officials to warn that there could be gridlock on the region’s streets next week.
While BART workers may strike, union workers at AC Transit have voted to authorize a strike if they and their transit agency can’t agree on a new contract.
A new survey of BART passengers released Monday shows a wider acceptance of allowing bicycles on the transit agency’s trains.
