AC Transit increases service to BART


AC Transit increases service to BART

AC Transit is launching its most significant expansion of bus service in recent history. Known as AC Go – it’s a nearly 14 percent expansion in overall service specifically designed to place more buses on the streets of the 22 cities and unincorporated areas served by AC Transit every day.  This is great news for BART riders because they researched ways and made changes to better connect to our stations. The result is newly created bus lines, the redesign of other routes, and some line providing more frequent service to BART.

“Having more transit options serving our stations is great for the region,” said BART Director Rebecca Saltzman.  “We can’t add more parking at BART so making the connection between bus and BART as seamless and frequent as possible will help make it easier for our riders to leave their cars at home.”
