Buses replace trains in Oakland some weekends in Aug. & Sep.
We will be making major repairs on the track and other infrastructure between 19th Street and West Oakland stations on several weekends in August and September, including Labor Day weekend. Here is a pdf of the map.
AC Transit will provide free bus service between the stations. The trip should take 10-15 minutes.
Trains in the East Bay will run at least every 20 minutes between Richmond and Warm Springs and Antioch and Dublin. All transfers, including to the bus for service to West Oakland (to catch trains to the West Bay) should be made at 19th Street Station. The West Bay service to Daly City will be every 10 minutes and to SFO/Millbrae every 20 minutes.
Trains will not run between West Oakland and Lake Merritt and West Oakland and 19th Street. Frequent buses will be provided instead.
The work is planned for the following dates: 8/4-5, 8/25-26, Labor Day Weekend 9/1-3, and 9/22-23. If the work can be finished early, we may cancel the final weekend. If we do, we will update the information on our website and through social media.
Please be aware there will be limited parking at West Oakland during these weekends.
We will stage equipment and supplies on 4th Street between Washington Street and Martin Luther King Way, there will be lights and noise during the work weekends.
This work is made possible through voter-approved Measure RR bond funds. We know that this work will temporarily inconvenience you. We appreciate your patience.
