Editor, Manteca Bulletin,

Five years is too long to wait for more access to BART.

ACE should take a page from Amtrak and provide round trip bus service to and from Stockton to the Dublin BART Station between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m., while the ACE trains sit idle in San Jose. The bus or buses could stop in Manteca’s new $7 million Transit Station. In the event ACE won’t consider buses, they should consider adding a short line for those hours, even if they have to tow an engine for returns, since they will only be going to Dublin.

The current ACE schedule mainly accommodates commuters. There are many valley residents that would use this service to attend Bay Area ball games, shopping, airline connections, etc. It would also provide service to the San Joaquin Valley for Bay Area residents.
