Executive Summary

Long Range Transit Plan Objectives
A Short-Range Transit Plan for YCTD was completed in August 2006 with five year
forecasts that anticipated considerable improvements in transit service. In March 2008,
Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) adopted the Metropolitan
Transportation Plan (MTP) 2035. As succinctly summarized in the MTP:

        “The Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2035 links land use and transportation
        planning with $42 billion in transportation investments in the six county
        Sacramento Region over the next 28 years.”

The MTP provides a framework for significant increases in travel by transit. Region
wide, total transit trips are expected to increase from 101,000 per day in 2005 to
326,000 per day in 2035. Annual growth in transit trips over the planning period is 4%
per year, more than twice the rate of population change. The primary objective of the
Long-Range Transit Plan is to update the Short-Range Transit Plan, providing a ten-
year plan to FY 2018-19, the mid-point of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2035.
The Long-Range Transit Plan is meant to expand the planning horizon to FY 2018-19
by:

! Updating the Short Range Transit Plan by expanding the planning horizon from
  FY 2012-13 to FY 2018-19.

! Documenting transit needs by incorporating SACOG 2018 model results.

! Providing service plan and fare recommendations.

! Planning for facility development.

! Establishing a detailed operating and capital financial plan.


Services Provided
The Yolo County Transportation District administers Yolobus, which operates local and
intercity bus service 365 days a year in Yolo County and neighboring areas. Yolobus
consists of 22 fixed routes and provides local, intercity, express/commute and rural
service throughout Yolo County. Outside of Yolo County, Yolobus provides service to
downtown Sacramento, the Sacramento International Airport and Vacaville. Local
service is provided in Woodland and West Sacramento, and is supported by the intercity
Route 42 which provides an hourly loop between Davis, Woodland, West Sacramento,
and downtown Sacramento. It operates in both directions and provides the only public

bus service to Sacramento International Airport, serving it from both Sacramento and
Woodland. Time transfers to Woodland local service are available at the County Fair
Mall. Express service operates on the freeway between cities during commute periods
with a premium fare, and commute service also operates only during peak periods, but
links closer communities, usually without operating on the freeways.

Yolobus makes connections with other local public transportation systems, including
Unitrans and Fairfield-Suisun Transit in Davis, Vacaville City Coach in Vacaville, as well
as Capitol Corridor trains to Fairfield and the Bay Area, and Regional Transit and Light
Rail in Sacramento. It is possible to make direct connections to other regional operators
that serve downtown Sacramento, such as Yuba-Sutter or El Dorado Transit.

Most of the 48 fixed-route buses use CNG, which is considered one of the lowest
emission buses available in the transit industry. YCTD has ordered several 45-foot
intercity coaches with 57 seats, and these are not available with CNG.

In addition to fixed route service, YCTD is responsible for ADA complementary
paratransit services in Yolo County, which were consolidated in January 1997. The two
main providers are the Yolobus Special paratransit service provided by YCTD and
Davis Community Transit (DCT).

YCTD is responsible for general administration, service and policy planning, contract
oversight, service monitoring and evaluation, preparation of annual operating and
capital budgets, provision of the fixed route and paratransit fleet, and service marketing.
The contract operator is responsible for the hiring, training and supervision of all
operations, maintenance, and road supervisory staff, the operation, fueling, and
maintenance of service vehicles, the booking and dispatching of all Yolobus Special
(Paratransit) trip requests, client registration, and the preparation of management
reports.

During FY 2009-10, YCTD will operate 122,895 vehicle revenue hours of service,
including 106,654 hours of Yolobus service and 16,241 hours of Paratransit.

Market Penetration
Transit ridership has grown rapidly on the local fixed route service. The 1.81 million
riders in FY 2008-09 represented a 22% increase over the previous year. Annual
Paratransit ridership is modest at approximately 18,200 trips, an increase of 1,600 from
the previous year. Total annual transit trips per capita increased from 6.8 to 9.1 during
the past five years. When Davis Unitrans ridership is added (Davis undergraduate
students ride Unitrans for free – supporting the system with their registration fees),
YCTD and Unitrans together account for approximately 24 annual trips per capita for the
County population.

Population and Employment Growth
Yolo County, which has four cities and a large unincorporated primarily agricultural
area, had a population of 168,000 according to the 2000 Census, which represented a
growth of 19% compared to 1990. The 2009 population is estimated at approximately
200,000 persons according to the California Department of Finance, of whom 65,000
live in Davis, 54,000 reside in Woodland, and 47,000 live in West Sacramento. Winters,
the fourth city, has about 7,000 residents.

While West Sacramento is adjacent to and across the river from the City of Sacramento,
the other cities are geographically separate and distinct, surrounded by agricultural
land. In terms of transportation access, Davis and West Sacramento are connected to
the region via I-80 while I-5 connects Woodland to the Sacramento Metropolitan Airport
and the City of Sacramento. Route 113 links Davis and Woodland.

Median income in the County was below the regional average, particularly in West
Sacramento, which had a median household income of $31,700 in 1990 compared to
the County average of $40,770 and the Sacramento County average of $43,816. The
West Sacramento proportion of families below the poverty level, at 17%, was almost
double the County proportion of 9%. YCTD ridership reflects both the significant low
income and large student populations, two demographic groups that have higher transit
ridership patterns than the general population.

SACOG projections show Yolo County growing 27% from 2005 to 2018, although the
County is approaching the 2013 forecast of 204,132 people in 2009. West Sacramento
is expected to grow the most rapidly, 50% between 2005 and 2018, compared to 24%
for Woodland and 14% for Davis.

According to SACOG projections, the greatest growth in person trips will be internal
trips within Davis, Woodland, and West Sacramento. Beyond that the largest increase
in travel will be between West Sacramento and downtown Sacramento, North Natomas,
and other nearby Sacramento districts.

Yolobus Plan Recommendations
The key recommendations of this 10-year transit plan include development of new
commute routes serving developing areas of West Sacramento, expanded service to
the Cache Creek Casino, reducing headways to 30 minutes on the Route 42 Intercity
service, and additional commute trips linking downtown Sacramento with each of the
communities. One new local route is also proposed for a developing area on the fringe
of Woodland. An additional 500 hours of Paratransit service are proposed for each year
of the planning period, boosting the current 16,241 annual hours of service to 20,741 by
FY 2018-19.

The financial analysis indicates that implementing all of these enhancements in the year
indicated would only be feasible with a new source of revenue or high rate of growth in
sales tax. These include the following fixed route changes by year:

FY 2010-11              14 new trips on the Route 215 Cache Creek service from
                        Woodland, adding 6,000 additional revenue hours. The subsidy for
                        this would be contributed by the tribe.

FY 2014-15              Three new routes are programmed between the expanding
                        Southport neighborhood of West Sacramento and downtown
                        Sacramento. Subsidy for the additional 4,950 annual hours should
                        be provided by developer contributions.

FY 2015-16              Doubling the frequency on the West Sacramento new routes
                        created in the previous year, and additional commute service from
                        Woodland and Davis, adding approximately 9,800 hours of service.

FY 2016-17              The largest programmed increase is 8,000 additional hours on
                        intercity Route 42, expanding the span of service hours. Other
                        increases include the new Woodland local route for approximately
                        3,000 annual hours, and smaller increments of Davis and West
                        Sacramento commute services.

FY 2017-18              Another 8,000 hours would start reducing headways on Route 42;
                        other increases include Davis and West Sacramento commute
                        service and additional trips on the Route 220 service which links
                        Vacaville, Winters, and Davis.

FY 2018-19              A final increment of 19,000 annual hours would be added to Route
                        42, bringing headways to 30 minutes. A new local route in West
                        Sacramento would add 10,400 more hours, and the number of
                        Davis commute trips would continue to expand.

Figure ES-1 summarizes the additional revenue hours and vehicles required to
implement the Long-Range Transit Plan for fixed route service. In addition, 4,500
annual hours and three additional Paratransit vehicles are planned to provide
enhancements for the Paratransit service.

Financial Planning Considerations

The financial plan provides the details on costs and revenues from FY 2009-10 to
FY 2018-19 based both on present revenue projections and on the recommendations
described above. Assumptions on cost inflation per hour and other expenditures are
based on past experience and anticipated future trends. Likewise, on the revenue side,
forecasts will be generated starting from the MTP financial projections updated with new
information since the adoption of the MTP 2035. Adjustments to fares are based on
financial needs and in order to achieve farebox recovery objectives.

The capital plan is based on fleet replacement and expansion needs as well as facility
improvements and other capital projects such as park-and-ride lots.

The number of revenue vehicle hours is the primary variable that determines operating
cost. The analysis details the forecasts of revenue hours, broken down by type of
service and geographic location as described in chapter three.

The hourly cost of operations and maintenance, as well as any staffing costs, are
subject to inflation, generally assumed to be 2.5-3% annually unless higher by
contractual arrangement or specifics of the particular operation. The operating cost
projections are based on applying the anticipated number of revenue hours by the
hourly service cost projection. The bus operating cost of approximately $101 per hour
for Yolobus buses and $75 per hour for Paratransit shown in the figure for FY 2009-10
was calculated by dividing total operating costs by revenue hours, so these figures
include all overhead, administrative, and fuel costs. This is a fully- loaded operating
cost including fuel, insurance, and administration as well as operations and
maintenance. This is a very reasonable cost per hour, particularly considering the use
of CNG vehicles for the Yolobus service.

The operating plan shows a significant shortfall of operating funds with the desired
service expansions. As cited previously, full implementation will require either an
expansion of existing funding sources or a new source of funding. The last three years
of the plan show an operating deficit of $880,000, $2.29 million, and $5.6 million
respectively. The total 10-year shortfall would be approximately $9.4 million, so almost
60% in the final year of the plan as a result of reducing headways to 30 minutes for
several key routes. The capital needs of the District appear to be fundable with existing
and programmed sources.

The basic adult fare for Yolobus is $2.00, with an additional $1 for express commuter
service. The senior and student fare is $1.00 and a student monthly pass is available
for $42.50. Fares were increased approximately 25-30% in April 2009. The DAR fare
for seniors and disabled is $3 to $5 depending on distance. Fare increases are
included in FY 2012-13 and FY 2017-18 to help balance the budget. These would be
on the order of $0.25 for adult cash with proportional increases in other fares

YCTD does not use all Local Transportation Fund (LTF) funds generated in Yolo
County. The plan would increase use of LTF funds from approximately $5.5 million in
FY 2008-09 to $8.1 million by FY 2018-19, which represents about 2/3 of the $12.6
million projected LTF revenue in FY 2018-19. Davis uses a portion of its funds to
support Unitrans and bikeway maintenance, and Woodland and Yolo County use a
portion of their funds for non-transit projects.

CHAPTER 1: Introduction
This chapter describes the objectives of the Long-Range Transit Plan (LRTP). It then
provides a historical perspective of the development of transit service by the Yolo
County Transit District (YCTD).

Long Range Transit Plan Objectives
A Short-Range Transit Plan for YCTD was completed in August 2006 with five year
forecasts that anticipated considerable improvements in transit service. Some of the
improvements have been implemented but some have been delayed because new
development has slowed somewhat. In March 2008, Sacramento Area Council of
Governments (SACOG) adopted the Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) 2035. As
succinctly summarized in the MTP:

        “The Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2035 links land use and transportation
        planning, with $42 billion in transportation investments in the six county
        Sacramento Region over the next 28 years.”

The MTP provides a framework for significant increases in travel by transit. Region
wide, total transit trips are expected to increase from 101,000 per day in 2005 to
326,000 per day in 2035. Annual growth in transit trips over the planning period is 4%
per year, more than twice the rate of population change. The primary objective of the
Long-Range Transit Plan is to update the Short-Range Transit Plan, providing a ten-
year plan to FY 2018-19, the mid-point of the Metropolitan Transportation Plan 2035.
The Long-Range Transit Plan is meant to expand the planning horizon to
FY 2018-19 by:

! Updating the Short Range Transit Plan by expanding the planning horizon from
  FY 2012-13 to FY 2018-19.

! Documenting transit needs by incorporating SACOG 2018 model results.

! Providing service plan and fare recommendations.

! Planning for facility development.

! Establishing a detailed operating and capital financial plan.


Historic Perspective
Yolo County is one of the counties that make up the Sacramento Metropolitan Area,
which stretches from the central valley to the foothills of the Sierra Mountains. Yolo

County, which has four cities and a large unincorporated, primarily agricultural area,
has, according to the California Department of Finance, a 2009 population of
approximately 200,000 persons of whom 65,000 live in Davis, 54,000 reside in
Woodland, and 47,000 live in West Sacramento. Winters, the fourth city, has about
7,000 residents.

While West Sacramento is adjacent to and across the river from the City of Sacramento,
the other cities are geographically separate and distinct, surrounded by agricultural
land. In terms of transportation access, Davis and West Sacramento are connected to
the region via I-80 while I-5 connects Woodland to the Sacramento International Airport
and the City of Sacramento. Route 113 links Davis and Woodland. Amtrak and the
Capitol Corridor trains make a stop in Davis on their route between Sacramento and the
San Francisco Bay Area.

The Yolo County Transportation District (YCTD) was created in 1997 to replace an
earlier Transit Authority. The duties of the agency were expanded as described below:
1



! To provide public transit services in Yolo County, both fixed route and paratransit;

! Serve as the Consolidated Transportation Services Agency (CTSA) for the County;

! To act as the Congestion Management Agency for Yolo County;

! Serve as the agency responsible for countywide coordination of transportation
  system planning, programming and prioritization of significant projects; and

! Serve as the coordinating agency for all state and federal funding applications,
  where appropriate.

The agency budget primarily reflects the transit operating and capital function, although
major transportation planning activities, such as technical and environmental studies for
a potential West Sacramento streetcar, also can affect the budget. The seven person
YCTD Board consists of representatives of the four cities, Yolo County, and the
University of California at Davis and Caltrans, which have ex-officio Board membership.

The Yolo County Transportation District administers Yolobus Special (Paratransit) an
ADA paratransit service which operates local and intercity bus service 365 days a year
in Yolo County and neighboring areas. Paratransit serves Davis, West Sacramento,
Winters, Woodland, downtown Sacramento, Sacramento International Airport, Cache
Creek Casino, Esparto, Madison and Knights Landing. Local bus service within Davis is

primarily operated by the University-operated Unitrans system; Paratransit service
within Davis is provided by Davis Community Transit; and YCTD provides the intercity
and commute service connecting Davis with Woodland, Sacramento, West Sacramento,
and Winters.

Yolobus makes connections with other local public transportation systems, including
Unitrans and Fairfield-Suisun Transit in Davis, Vacaville City Coach in Vacaville, as well
as Capitol Corridor trains to Fairfield and the Bay Area, and Regional Transit and Light
Rail in Sacramento. It is possible to make direct connections to other regional operators
that serve downtown Sacramento, such as Yuba-Sutter or El Dorado Transit.

In 1993, the YCTD was among the first transit agencies in California to use compressed
natural gas bus technology, and now most of the 48 fixed-route buses use CNG, which
is considered one of the lowest emission buses available in the transit industry. YCTD
has ordered several 45-foot intercity coaches with 57 seats, and these are not available
with CNG.

In addition to fixed route service, YCTD is responsible for ADA complementary
paratransit services in Yolo County, which were consolidated in January 1997. The two
main providers are Yolobus Special, the paratransit service provided by YCTD and
Davis Community Transit (DCT). YCTD provides local ADA paratransit services in
Woodland and West Sacramento, inter-city ADA paratransit services between specific
Yolo County communities, and rural ADA route deviation services. The Yolobus Special
service is provided for persons who are unable to use Yolobus Special or Unitrans
wheelchair accessible fixed route service because of a “functional” disability. Applicants
are screened based on mobility aid use, and questions pertaining to difficulties getting
to and from a bus stop, understanding instructions, waiting at a bus stop, and cognitive
capabilities. Professional verification of the applicant’s condition is required. Herein
after the ADA paratransit service will be referred to as Paratransit.

YCTD is responsible for general administration, service and policy planning, contract
oversight, service monitoring and evaluation, preparation of annual operating and
capital budgets, provision of the Yolobus and Paratransit fleet, and service marketing.
The contract operator is responsible for the hiring, training and supervision of all
operations, maintenance, and road supervisory staff, the operation, fueling, and
maintenance of service vehicles, the booking and dispatching of all Paratransit trip
requests, client registration, and the preparation of management reports.

CHAPTER 2: Transit Needs
This chapter presents population and employment trends in Yolo County, transit
ridership trends in the County, and anticipated growth in transit demand based on
SACOG modeling and demographic trends.

Community Trends
Yolo County, which has four cities and a large unincorporated primarily agricultural
area, had a population of 168,000 according to the 2000 Census, which represented a
growth of 19% compared to 1990. The 2009 population is estimated at approximately
200,000 persons according to the California Department of Finance, of whom 65,000
live in Davis, 54,000 reside in Woodland, and 47,000 live in West Sacramento. Winters,
the fourth city, has about 7,000 residents.

While West Sacramento is adjacent to and across the river from the City of Sacramento,
the other cities are geographically separate and distinct, surrounded by agricultural
land. In terms of transportation access, Davis and West Sacramento are connected to
the region via I-80 while I-5 connects Woodland to the Sacramento Metropolitan Airport
and the City of Sacramento. Route 113 links Davis and Woodland. Amtrak and the
Capitol Corridor trains make a stop in Davis on their route between Sacramento and the
San Francisco Bay Area.

The largest employer in the County is the University of California at Davis with about
12,000 employees and 31,000 students, including undergraduate and graduate
programs. UC Davis students represent a substantial percentage of the Yolo County
population although not all live in Davis or the County. The median age in Davis was 25
in 2000, compared to 29.5 for the County. This compared to a median age of almost 34
for Sacramento County and 38 in Placer County which has a significant retiree
population.

Median income in the County was below the regional average, particularly in West
Sacramento, which had a median household income of $31,700 in 1990 compared to
the County average of $40,770 and the Sacramento County average of $43,816. The
West Sacramento proportion of families below the poverty level, at 17%, was almost
double the County proportion of 9%. YCTD ridership reflects both the significant low
income and student populations, two demographic groups that have higher transit
ridership patterns than the general population.

Annual ridership per capita has been increasing for Yolobus. The ridership of 1.81
million trips for 2008-09 represented 9.1 annual rides per capita, compared to 6.8 five
years previously in 2004-05. Since Davis undergraduate students ride Unitrans for free
(they support the system with their registration fees), the three million annual riders


Transit Resource Center                                                              2-1

represents a very high ratio of annual trips per capita within Davis, and adding Unitrans
and Yolobus together would yield approximately 24 annual rides per capita for the
County.

Population and Employment Trends
As shown in Figure 2-1 below, SACOG projections show Yolo County growing 27%
from 2005 to 2018, although the County is approaching the 2013 forecast of 204,132
people in 2009.

Figures 2-2 and 2-3 show the anticipated growth of population and employment in Yolo
County between 2005 and 2018. Winters, Eastern Woodland, northeast Davis, and
West Sacramento are expected to see the most population growth and presumably
residential development. West Davis and northern and eastern (along the river)
sections of West Sacramento are expected to have the greatest employment growth
during the 13 year time span. While the large Esparto-Capay Valley zone is expecting
both population and employment growth, the employment growth is related to the
expansion of the Cache Creek Casino and does not represent an expansion of jobs
throughout the traffic analysis zone (TAZ).

Figures 2-4 through 2-6 illustrate the growth in intercity travel between 2005 and 2018
for the three principal cities of Yolo County, and figure 2-7 shows a SACOG projection
of growth of transit trips internally and between communities. In each case, the
numerical increase in travel is greatest for internal trips within the communities.

Figure 2-4 shows project change in travel patterns between Davis and other regional
analysis districts (RAD); analysis zones defined by SACOG. The greatest volume of
travel as well as the largest increase will be between Davis and Woodland with 22,000
daily trips, a growth of almost 5,000 trips a day. The projections also show the volume
of daily trips between Davis and downtown Sacramento growing by 641 trips a day for a
total of 14,848 trips, which is the second largest volume between communities. Travel
between Davis and both North Natomas and West Sacramento is expected to each
grow by approximately 2,000 trips daily.

Figure 2-5 shows projected change in travel patterns between West Sacramento and
other RAD’s. Although West Sacramento is in Yolo County, its stronger travel
relationship is with communities in Sacramento County, including 84,342 daily trips to
downtown (a growth of 25,528 daily trips), East Sacramento (25,700 daily trips),
Landpark (32,693), and North Natomas with 20,777 daily trips, a doubling from 2005
volumes.

Figure 2-6 shows the projected travel patterns between Woodland and other
communities. The largest projected volumes of travel are between Woodland and
Davis, with 22,000 trips, and North Natomas with 9,056 trips, a doubling of 2005 travel.
Although travel to downtown Sacramento is only projected to grow by 413 daily trips,
the volume of 8,000 daily trips is substantial. The 3,536 daily trips between Woodland
and West Sacramento are also substantial, as is the growth of 1,037 trips.

Yolobus Ridership Trends
Yolobus consists of 22 fixed routes and provides local, intercity, express/commute and
rural service throughout Yolo County. Outside of Yolo County, Yolobus provides
service to downtown Sacramento, the Sacramento International Airport and Vacaville.
Local service is provided in Woodland and West Sacramento, and is supported by the
intercity Route 42 which provides an hourly loop between Davis, Woodland, West
Sacramento, and downtown Sacramento. It operates in both directions and provides
the only public bus service to Sacramento International Airport, serving it from both
Sacramento and Woodland. Time transfers to Woodland local service are available at
the County Fair Mall. Express service operates on the freeway between cities during
commute periods with a premium fare, and commute service also operates only during
peak periods, but links closer communities, usually without operating on the freeways.

Figure 2-8 shows ridership trends for Yolobus and Figure 2-9 provides brief route
descriptions along with annual ridership and ridership per hour. As will be noted, the
Intercity Route 42 service accounts for approximately a third of Yolobus ridership, and
Route 215, the intercity route between Woodland and the Cache Creek Casino,
accounts for significant ridership as well. It is unique in that Yolobus receives a

operating assistance.

Route 220 provides local service in Winters, with intercity connections to Vacaville and
Davis. Routes 216 and 217 provide lifeline service between rural communities and the
Woodland County Seat, operating two trips a day twice a week.

As seen in Figure 2-8, Yolobus ridership has fluctuated somewhat, but has shown solid
increases during the past few years. After Yolobus service generated 1.3 million annual
trips in FY 2001-02, it declined about 8% to 1.2 million trips during the following two-
year recessionary period, before coming back to 1.3 million trips by FY 2005-06. Since
then it gained four percent, nine percent, and had a 22% gain comparing
FY 2008-09 to the previous year. Unlike other recessionary periods, the current one
showed a large patronage increase, presumably related to high gasoline cost during
summer and fall 2008. However, the ridership gains have continued during 2009
despite lower gas prices and rising unemployment.

Because of the large service area, Yolobus does not operate out of one central “transit
center,” but rather has several smaller transfer locations where some routes have timed
connections. Many connections are made via Route 42 at the County Fair Mall in
Woodland, along West Capitol Avenue in West Sacramento, at the Memorial Union in
Davis and at several locations throughout Downtown Sacramento. Connections to
other transit agencies can also be made in Davis (to Unitrans, Fairfield-Suisun Transit
and Amtrak), in downtown Sacramento (to RT and several other providers) and in
Vacaville (to Vacaville City Coach and Fairfield-Suisun Transit).

Comparing the performance and route network in FY 2008-09 to that reported in the
August 2006 Short-Range Transit Plan indicates good progress in most respects. The
Route 42 Intercity service that links Woodland, Sacramento, West Sacramento and
Davis remains the most significant trunk line. Due to an increase in service on other
routes, Route 42 has dropped from 43% of total Yolobus patronage in 2004 to 36% by
October 2008 during which 61,150 passengers rode the service. Almost 650,000 used
the route during FY 2008-09 – an increase of almost 100,000 trips from the previous
year. With the development and expansion of the Cache Creek Casino, the 215 route
that links it with Woodland has become the second most utilized route, with 292,000
passengers during 2008-09, 16% of total patronage. Several other routes, including
Route 43 Davis to Sacramento peak period express route, and two local routes which
link West Sacramento to downtown Sacramento (routes 40 and 240) each generate
about five percent of the patronage and about 8,000 monthly trips.

Like any transit service, there is a great variety in route productivity, with several
commute routes showing productivity rates of 34 passengers per hour (routes 43 and
242), and the well utilized 42 and 215 routes which operate every day generating
approximately 21-22 passengers per hour. Weekday and Saturday service is much
more productive than Sunday, but YCTD operates Sunday service to provide lifeline
connections. For example, the route 42 intercity service carries 24 passengers per hour
on weekdays, 20 passengers per hour on Saturdays, but only 8 passengers per hour on
Sundays. Route 211 local service in Woodland generates 18 passengers per hour on
weekdays, 13 per hour on Saturdays, but only six per hour on Sundays. The worst
performing route, the 221 Winters local service, generated fewer than one passenger
per hour, and was recently eliminated from the route network.

Considering future transit demand, the most rapid population growth is anticipated in
West Sacramento, in the redevelopment area closest to the river and downtown
Sacramento and new development in the Southport area. Figure 2-1 showed the 50%
population increase anticipated in West Sacramento between 2005 and 2018.
Forecasts of total travel and growth of transit trips indicate significant growth within
West Sacramento, across the river to downtown Sacramento, as well as to other
Sacramento districts such as Natomas, Land Park, and East Sacramento. While
Paratransit is responsible for trips to the downtown area, current plans anticipate the
patrons would continue to transfer to Regional Transit for trips to other areas besides
downtown.

YCTD has evaluated the feasibility of streetcar, linking West Sacramento Transit
Center, including West Sacramento City Hall, West Sacramento Los Rios Community
College, Yolo County Library and West Sacramento Community Center, and
development along Tower Bridge Gateway with downtown Sacramento. The project
would be primarily funded through developer contributions and creation of an
assessment district. Currently YCTD, City of West Sacramento, City of Sacramento
and Sacramento Regional Transit are completing phase 2 of the project which includes
Environmental and Preliminary Engineering work.

West Sacramento

YCTD has worked with the City of West Sacramento to require, as part of a
development agreement, that three developments in the Southport area contribute both
capital and operating funds as part of the development approval. However, all three of
the developments are on hold as a result of FEMA’s concerns about the adequate level
of flood protections and the current housing market. When the developments proceed,
YCTD will receive $1.7 million in one-time capital funds and an on-going contribution of
up to $600,000 annually from each development to support operating costs of additional
service.

Paratransit Special Service

The Yolo County Paratransit service is operated by Yolobus, with the exception of trips
within Davis which are operated by Davis Community Transit. YCTD provides ADA
complementary paratransit service within ! of a mile of fixed route service for those
unable to use fixed route service because of a functional disability. Riders need to be
registered and certified as eligible. For the rural areas, including registrants in Winters,
Capay, Dunnigan, Yolo, and Knights Landing, the scheduled buses will divert up to ! of
a mile to accommodate ADA clients.

According to the 2006 SRTP, ridership on the Paratransit service declined 10% over a
five year period ending in 2004, and revenue hours declined by 17% over the same
period. Passenger productivity increased from 1.62 to 1.74 passengers per revenue
hour, but operating cost per passenger increased significantly to a FY 2004-05 subsidy
level of $51.38 per trip. Results since then have been mixed. FY 2008-09 Paratransit
ridership increased to 18,224, an increase of 45% during the past four years. However,
passenger productivity has declined to 1.12 passengers per revenue hour and the
operating cost per passenger was at approximately $70 per trip for FY 2008-09. With
the substantial increase in senior population, increasing demand for Paratransit service
is anticipated.

Changes In Senior And Disabled Demographics
Aging of the population is well documented. In 2005, SACOG completed the regional
Senior and Disabled Mobility Study, which documented the projected increase in the
population aged 65+ for Sacramento and other counties. As the study pointed out:

! Population projections have been developed by the California Department of
  Finance (DoF). DoF projections are from a regional economic model which makes
  assumptions about future levels of migration into each county.

! According to DoF projections, the number of people age 55 or older in the
  Sacramento Region will increase by approximately 580,000, or 153%, between 2000
  and 2030. As shown in Figure 2-10 below, the population of people over 55 and 65

    is expected to grow much faster than Yolo County population as a whole. This will
    increase demand for both Yolobus and Paratransit service.

Local input was received during the study process at Yolo County. Preferred solutions
relevant to transit were mentioned at public meetings and are summarized as follows:

! More emphasis on the needs of elders and persons with disabilities in the
  transportation planning process, including universal design and transit oriented
  development in a way that works for all users.

! Greater public participation.

! Focusing transit funds on more frequent midday, evening, weekend, and
  Neighborhood Ride service, not just commuter services.

! Prioritized bus stop amenities such as shelters and benches, safety mechanisms on
  bus doors to keep them from closing too quickly, low-floor buses, upgrades to
  wheelchair restraints, and real-time transit information technology, safety
  improvements at bus stops and on buses, including improved lighting and visibility at
  stops.

! More “seamless” service with common transfer points for Yolobus and Paratransits
  as well as universal fare cards.

! Better linkages of smaller communities to larger ones.

! For demand-responsive services, smaller vehicle and jitney services, expanded
  demand-responsive and community/volunteer transportation programs.

! More taxis that are regulated, insured, supervised, offer a variety of passenger
  payment options and accessible vehicles, and include discounts/sliding
  scales/subsidies for low-income seniors/persons with disabilities.

! More funding for these purposes, as well as looking at distance-based pricing, and
  priority for rides based on medical need.

For Yolobus transit, seniors and members of the disabled community stressed more
buses for more service, including nights and weekends and more spaces for wheelchair
users, accompanied by enforcement of stop announcements and reserved spaces for
seniors and persons with disabilities. Participants also prioritized sensitivity training for
all drivers on smooth driving of large buses or paratransit vehicles, and simulations to
understand varied impairments.

The highest priority for workshop participants was supplemental, subsidized, accessible
(ramp-equipped) taxi service, similar to that in San Francisco. The next was for
expanded demand-responsive service hours, and greater same-day flexibility for adding
riders seeking destinations similar to those with advance reservations. Attendees
suggested shuttles to high-demand destinations, and that large medical facilities, such
as Kaiser, provide transportation to medical appointments for those needing
transportation assistance. Lastly, the group suggested developing a centralized list,
managed by a transportation broker or coordinator, of groups or agencies with
accessible vehicles which could transport disabled persons during unplanned situations,
such as an illness at work or a vehicle break-down.

Annual Unmet Transit Needs Hearings
Each year SACOG holds unmet transit needs hearings throughout Yolo County
including the principal cities and Winters. After reviewing testimony received at the Yolo
County hearings in March 2007 and February 2008, the SACOG board found “no unmet
transit needs that were reasonable to meet” based on established criteria. Service-
related comments in SACOG’s Unmet Needs Hearings Summary included:

! Adding lighting to increase bus stop safety;

! Increasing service on Route 35 in West Sacramento to provide consistent hourly
  service;

! Increasing service to the Southport area of West Sacramento; and

! Adding 3-bicycle racks to buses since the 2-bicycle racks are sometimes full.

YCTD has a program to improve bus stops, has addressed the Route 35 concerns and
plans to add service in the Southport area when the level of development and transit
demand increases. YCTD has implemented 3-bicycle racks on large Yolobus buses.

An additional hearing in October 2008 included requests for expanded midday service
in West Sacramento, express service in Woodland from the developing Spring Lake
subdivision, and Paratransit service directly to the Amtrak Station in Davis. YCTD is
seeking funding in some cases and in others indicates that there is not sufficient
development or demand for the requested enhancements at this point.

CHAPTER 3: Transit Service Plan
There are four elements of transit service for Yolo County residents – commute trips to
jobs in other communities, intercity service between communities, including Sacramento
and Sacramento International Airport, local Yolobus service within the individual cities,
and Paratransit service for seniors and the disabled. As is typical, commute and
intercity service are generally well utilized, and performance on local routes is mixed.
As shown in Figure 3-1, approximately 106,500 annual revenue hours are budgeted for
fixed route service during FY 2009-10. The intercity routes account for almost 50% of
revenue hours, followed by West Sacramento with 25%, Woodland at 19%, and Davis
at 10% - which exclusively represents commute service to Sacramento. The Davis
hours do not include the separate local service provided by Unitrans within Davis.

                     Figure 3-1. Yolobus Revenue Hours: FY 2009-10

                   Fixed Route Area                 Budgeted Hours

                   Total Revenue Hours                   122,895


The Paratransit service is budgeted for 16,241 revenue hours during FY 2009-10.

As briefly described previously, Route 42, the intercity route that connects Woodland,
Davis, West Sacramento, Sacramento, and Sacramento International Airport with hourly
clockwise and counterclockwise loops is the most important route for YCTD. More than
a half million annual riders use the route, approximately a third of YCTD ridership. The
route makes scheduled transit center stops in Woodland, and interfaces with Unitrans in
Davis at the UC Davis transit center, links to local YCTD routes in West Sacramento,
and links with Sacramento RT and other agencies, including Yuba-Sutter Transit, at
downtown Sacramento stops. When funding is available, YCTD is planning to increase
service on route 42. The first goal is extending the span of service – both on weekdays
and weekends. The next step would be increasing service from hourly trips to trips



Transit Resource Center                                                                3-1

every 30 minutes. If funding remains limited, the improvements will be incremental –
first during peak ridership times, then the remainder of weekday hours, then weekend
hours. Figure 3-2 illustrates route 42. Because the full cycle takes over two hours,
each leg of the route turns back in downtown Sacramento, allowing YCTD to operate
the hourly service in both directions with five rather than six buses.

Route 215, which connects Woodland and the Cache Creek Casino, is well utilized by
employees. The Casino is seeking development approval for additional expansion, a
project that will increase the labor force by up to an additional 1,000 persons.

The geographic span of YCTD, ranging from Vacaville to Sacramento, makes it
impossible to graphically illustrate the route structure on a single map. Figures 3-3, 3-4,

express service respectively. The service to Vacaville, Esparto – Cache Creek, Yolo,
Dunnigan, and Knights Landing is not shown on these maps, but can be found at:

As shown in Figure 2-1, SACOG projections anticipate West Sacramento to have the
highest change in population from 2005 to 2018, 50% compared to 27% countywide,
24% for Woodland, and less for the remaining communities. If this growth occurs, much
of it planned for the Southport area of West Sacramento, YCTD will implement both new
commute services and additional local service in West Sacramento, connecting the new
development with the employment center of downtown Sacramento.

With the exception of the new routes in West Sacramento, and possibly splitting the
Route 45 Express service from Woodland to Sacramento into two routes serving
different parts of Woodland, other YCTD planned service improvements consist of
adding trips to existing routes, both commute and local service. The standard local 60
minute headways will be shortened to 30 minutes wherever possible and financially
feasible. In general, the transit industry has found that reducing headways on well-
used services significantly increases ridership. The following sections lay out
anticipated improvements by year. As described further in Chapter 4, this plan will
require additional funding to implement. Examples of new sources could include a Yolo
County sales tax, a new source related to California S.B. 375 legislation to reduce
greenhouse gases or funds resulting from federal cap and trade legislation.
