Bishop Ranch Reaches 3 Million Riders on Commuter Shuttle

Celebration Planned for Today at 8:00 am

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  Bishop Ranch, the San Ramon-based business community that is home to more than 550 companies and 33,000 employees, today announced the arrival of its 3 millionth commuter using its express shuttle service to and from the local Bart station.

Bishop Ranch has taken a leadership role in addressing the transit needs of its commuters, which has helped eliminate more than 10,000 cars on the road every day, resulting in almost 2 million pounds fewer pollutants released into the air. The shuttle system is a key component of the Bishop Ranch Transportation Association, sponsored by Sunset Development Company and Chevron Corporation. The BRTA recently won one of eight Gold Awards in a 10-month national competition of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This is the third national Gold Award for Bishop Ranch, and the only business community of the three 2009 Gold Award winners in California.

On Tuesday, April 27th at 8:00am, Bishop Ranch will celebrate by congratulating the shuttle bus commuters. Interviews with Bishop Ranch executives and photo ops will be made available.

"We are extremely proud of the program's success," comments Ed Hagopian, executive vice president of Sunset Development Company, an investment builder and developer of Bishop Ranch. "We firmly believe green is good business and the right thing to do! We applaud these employees whose commute choices have a positive impact on the environment every day. These efforts make big advances in keeping the air clean and making Bishop Ranch an enviable place to work. We are proud to be the only business location in Northern California that has such a successful program."

In addition to the express commuter shuttle, Bishop Ranch has implemented a broad range of other state-of-the art "green" initiatives including recycling, energy conservation and green cleaning.
