Wheels Summer Detours Planned for Downtown Pleasanton

10R detour around downtown Pleasanton to Old Bernal Ave. for summer months.

Wheels is modifying its route 10R Rapid service to bypass crowding in downtown Pleasanton during the summer months. The popularity of the Meadowlark Dairy and community events like farmers markets, First Weekend on Main, and Concerts in the Park create congestion on the narrow streets. The service change is needed to keep buses on time, ensuring reliability and safety for riders and pedestrians.
Starting June 1 and lasting through summer, Wheels will be implementing the following changes to route 10R:

  • The current westbound bus stop on Neal St., located on what will be the new Meadowlark Dairy stacking lane, will be closed. Signs will be posted to indicate passenger should access Wheels at an alternative stop across the street on the corner on First St. and Neal St. adjacent to Delucchi Park.
  • Route 10R buses traveling westbound will be rerouted to remain on First Street with no stops until resuming the regular route at Peters St. via Old Bernal Ave.
  • There are no changes to the eastbound Route 10R service or bus stops.

“Continuing to provide quality, safe, and reliable Wheels bus service to downtown Pleasanton over the summer months remains a top priority. To ensure that riders who rely on Wheels to get them to work and other important appointments aren’t delayed, Wheels is instituting a temporary detour on westbound Route 10R in downtown Pleasanton for the summer months. Safety is our priority at Wheels, and temporarily removing the bus from a narrow street with high pedestrian and vehicular traffic was our only solution”, said LAVTA Executive Director Christy Wegener.
