El Dorado Hills Community Transit Needs Assessment survey and Operations Plan
EDCTC has received several public comments from community members desiring public transit service in El Dorado Hills. EDCTC considered each of these factors and coordinated with El Dorado Transit to pursue grant funding to develop the El Dorado Hills Community Transit Needs Assessment and US 50 Corridor Transit Operations Plan.
The Western El Dorado County 2008 Short-Range Transit Plan recommends implementation of public transit service in the El Dorado Hills area. EDCTC was successful in securing grant funds from the California Department of Transportation's 2011/12 Transit Technical Planning Assistance Grant program to develop the Needs Assessment and Operations Plan.

The complementary, two-part planning effort will focus primarily on the following tasks:
Facilitate the necessary public outreach, operational, and financial anaylsis to determine the feasibility of implementation of public service in El Dorado HIlls; and Develop a detailed transition plan that supports the implementation of a US 50 corridor-based transit system that will improve the convenience and efficiency of El Dorado Transist's operations.
At their March 1, 2012 Board meeting, EDCTC awarded a contract to LSC Transportation Consultants, Inc., to develop the Needs Assessment and Operations Plan. The planning effort began in April 2012.
