Landowners pushing the North Livermore development plan presented a $50 million transit proposal to Livermore city and county planning commissions on Tuesday. The proposal included new buses, and highway and rapid transit connection improvements that would decrease the amount of time it would take to connect prospective North Livermore residents to BART. The costs of operating the bus system would be carried by future North Livermore homeowners, and free ridership from North Livermore would provide incentive for future residents to use the system. While a Livermore resident argued that transit problems cannot be solved by adding to sprawl, county Supervisor Scott Haggerty called the plan "innovative."
