Reducing Traffic Congestion and Keeping Kids Safe [Video]

Danville, CA — I proudly served as the Program Manager for the Measure J Congestion Relief Agency (also known as TRAFFIX) from 2016 to 2018.

My story with TRAFFIX started when my son was a freshman at Monte Vista High School. He rode the TRAFFIX bus from 2012 through 2014 as a high school freshman and sophomore. During that time, I became engaged with the program and was appointed to the Citizens Advisory Committee as the Contra Costa County representative of TRAFFIX in 2013. I served as vice chair in 2015 and was appointed by the Board of Directors as the Program Manager in 2016.

In 2015, I was one of two parents featured in videos produced by the Agency for high school and middle school students.

The purpose of TRAFFIX is to reduce traffic congestion caused by parents driving their children to and from school through some of the San Ramon Valley’s most congested intersections. The program has made a difference. Our 22 buses transport 1,650 students daily at 11 schools, running 37 routes. That means more than 825 cars are off the road in some of the most congested corridors each day. Parents save time and money and kids get to school safely.

TRAFFIX is operated jointly by the Town of Danville, City of San Ramon, Contra Costa County, and the San Ramon Valley Unified School District, with the majority of its funding coming from Contra Costa County’s Measure J.
