IFB 2020-1487 BRT Bus Livery

IFB 2020-1487 BRT Bus Livery

AC Transit Number

Bus rapid transit (BRT) is a new and innovative service that is a sub-brand of AC Transit and will be launching in the East Bay in late 2019 or possibly in early 2020. This type of service is often called “light rail on wheels” because it brings the frequency and reliability of light rail to the bus rider without having to lay down the infrastructure required for rail transit. AC Transit’s BRT service will run the 9.5-mile corridor from downtown Oakland to San Leandro BART, connecting people and places more efficiently. More information on BRT can be found here: BRT Website

The hybrid diesel, double-sided door, high-capacity vehicles used in this service will differ significantly from AC Transit’s regular fleet and need to be branded uniquely to reflect the distinction in rider experience. Vehicles will travel in bus-only lanes bypassing traffic congestion and, like trains, will have doors on both the left and the right sides to allow passengers to board at either curb or median stations along the route.

The livery design for the twenty-seven (27) 60-foot articulated BRT vehicles will be executed by a combination of an existing paint scheme and a partial vinyl wrap that covers between 75 and 90 percent of the body, including contoured design elements over the windows.
