Transportation Guide: AC Transit

actransit.org

This extensive bus system spans from Fremont all the way up to El Sobrante stopping in Alameda, Berkeley, Oakland, and Emeryville along the way, with a Transbay line that runs from San Francisco’s Transbay Terminal at Mission and 1st Street. Note that some Transbay line runs only on weekdays and during commute hours, but at all other times the AC Transit is a great way to connect from BART stations to other East Bay destinations.

Here is all you need to know about how to ride AC Transit:
