Calif.'s Tri Delta continues partnership with First Transit

Posted on June 23, 2016

First Transit signed a new contract with Tri Delta Transit in Antioch, Calif., where the company operates 92 buses for the fixed-route and paratransit services and will now staff the call center, dispatch and operations functions.

First Transit is partnering with Tri Delta Transit to bring technology enhancements including new tablet computers on the paratransit buses, the addition of text and email passenger notification, and the ability to schedule paratransit trips online.

“First Transit understood our desire to further improve the passenger experience,” said Jeanne Krieg, CEO for Tri Delta Transit. “We were looking for several unique technology solutions, and they were able to provide them.”

Tri Delta Transit local buses connect to the Bay Area Rapid Transit, County Connection serving central Contra Costa County, WestCAT bus service serving western Contra Costa County, and Amtrak at shared bus stops.

“Since 1986, we have had a strong transportation partnership with Tri Delta Transit,” said Don Swain, regional VP for First Transit. “We remain committed to providing safe and efficient transportation solutions to the residents of the eastern Contra Costa County area.”
