Next month, Tri Delta is launching a new weekend route serving Slatten Ranch, The Streets of Brentwood and Sand Creek Shopping Center in Brentwood. The new route, Weekend Route 395, begins service Saturday, Oct. 6.
Route 395 will provide new travel options for local residents as well as weekend access to highly desired shopping and entertainment centers in Southeast Antioch and Brentwood.
“A great deal of planning and community input went into the development of the new route,” said Director of Marketing Mike Furnary. “Customers have been requesting weekend service to Slatten Ranch and the Streets of Brentwood for a while. Through careful planning and efficiency improvements to existing routes, we are now able to offer this service.”
Route 395 will be easily accessible by all of Tri Delta Transit’s existing weekend routes at the Antioch Park & Ride. For those living in the area surrounding The Streets of Brentwood or Lone Tree Way near Empire Avenue, Route 395 will also provide fast, convenient service to the Antioch Park & Ride, where connections can be made to all of East Contra Costa County. To see the new route map, including bus stop locations and departure times, visit www.trideltatranst.com.
In addition to the new weekend route, Tri Delta Transit will be combining two existing routes – Route 384 and Route 385 – into one newly revised Route 385, which will continue to serve key locations served by Route 384: Heritage High School, Adams Middle School, Bristow Middle School, John Muir Medical Center, The Streets of Brentwood, and the Brentwood Park & Ride.
“By efficiently combining these two routes into one, we are able to maintain service to key locations while providing greater access to more of our community,” said Furnary. Route 385 will now serve several neighborhoods along Balfour Road in Brentwood.
The new routes are being introduced along with a newly revised schedule going into effect Monday, Oct. 1. The new schedule includes time changes to most existing Tri Delta Transit routes as well as redesigned routes on select runs. To get an early look at all upcoming schedule changes, as well as new and redesigned route maps, log on to www.trideltatransit.com. New printed schedules will be available on buses the week of Sept. 24.

Tri Delta Transit currently operates 14 local bus routes Mondays through Fridays, three local bus routes on weekends, express commuter routes to BART, door-to-door bus service for senior citizens and people with disabilities, a 49ers Sports Shuttle to every home game and shuttle services to community events.
