El Dorado County Line Multi-Modal Transit Center Study Community Open House – Summary

AIM Consulting has released a summary of the results from public comments generated at the May 17, 2018 Community open house for the El Dorado County Line Multi-Modal Transit Center Study,  sponsored by the El Dorado County Transportation Commission and El Dorado Transit. This study is envisioned to find a replacement for the existing El Dorado Transit Park and Ride facility at White Rock Rd and Post St in Town Center (behind the Big O Tires store).

The current facility is maxed out (167 parking spaces). The concept is to provide a more capable facility, to handle more parking spaces and to provide additional services to draw more commute riders into El Dorado Transit Commuter buses into Sacramento and Folsom, and to get more cars off of HWY50. The focus is for  transportation between El Dorado Hills & Sacramento County. Options are being explored to make the facility more ‘walkable’ and ‘bikeable’ as well as amenities like electric charging stations for hybrid and full electric vehicles, access for school buses from school districts, bike lockers, a rideshare drop off lane (Uber/Lyft) and other potential concepts like shops and a cafe. Potential for parking El Dorado Transit vehicles on site is also desired.

Potential sites for the new facility have been located in and around White Rock Rd and Latrobe Rd – the facility needs to be near HWY50 to minimize the time spent getting on and off the highway.

From the summary:

Next Steps
Over the summer, the project team will develop a plan for the new El Dorado Hills transit center. In the fall, the project team will host a second public workshop to explore proposed transit center options. The project team will present a recommended plan to the public and the EDCTC Board at the end of the year.
