Last night BART announced it was able to get its hands on more buses to serve the West Oakland Station and their bus bridge to San Francisco.
Commuters can show up at West Oakland, park for free, and get a free round trip ticket to San Francisco.
BART now has 36 charter buses serving the West Oakland-Downtown San Francisco bus bridge, compared to 18 yesterday. The hours for the West Oakland bus bridge in the morning are 5 AM – 9 AM. The return home from a stop near the Transbay Terminal will be from 3 PM – 7 PM.
BART will continue to serve the following 4 stations from 5 AM – 8 AM and then return from a stop near the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco from 3 PM – 7 PM:
- El Cerrito del Norte
- Walnut Creek
- Fremont station
Complete details about the busses and commute options can be found on bart.gov.
Commuters are still advised to work from home if possible and carpool as these busses provide very limited service compared to what BART usually serves. 511.org also continues to be a vital resource for commuters.
