Take a Free Shuttle

Alameda County offers the public free shuttles for easier, more sustainable travel between select BART stations and County buildings.

Convenient Commuting

Free County shuttles offer fast, convenient connections between downtown Oakland, Oakland’s Embarcadero, restaurants, shops and County buildings and BART stations. So hop on transit and leave your car at home.

New Schedules: Be aware that new Shuttle schedules go into effect on March 23, 2020, taking into account changes in ridership. We will monitor shuttle use and projected County building occupancy, and we will continue to adjust the schedules as needed.

County Holidays: All shuttles run Monday — Friday, and do not run on County holidays.
