|BART Transbay Tube Shutdown|
Updated 25 August 2015
Information regarding the Transbay Tube Closure
The following information is from BART.
BART is encouraging travelers to plan ahead, avoid unnecessary transbay travel, or to find alternate means of transportation across the Bay during Labor Day weekend. BART will close the West Oakland Station and will not run trains between West Oakland and Embarcadero stations on September 5, 6, & 7th, while we repair a critical section of track near the Transbay Tube.
Bus Bridge Details
BART will offer lifeline bus service between 19th Street in Oakland and the Temporary Transbay Terminal in San Francisco, but the buses are intended
only for those who have no other options. The buses will carry customers
from 19th Street Station in Oakland to the Temporary Transbay Terminal in
San Francisco (a 2 block walk to the Embarcadero Station) or from there back
to the East Bay. There will be no additional charge for the bus. The bus
bridge will cause 30 minutes to one hour delays for some customers.
During our earlier transbay closure in August, the bus trip took about 20
minutes, but when you factor in walking to/from the bus connection, it took
about 30 minutes. Check out our tips page for more details about how to get
from the Temporary Transbay Terminal to the Embarcadero Station.
Accommodations will be available for people with disabilities.
West Oakland Station Closure
There will be some shuttle buses to/from West Oakland Station, which is
closed during the shut down, to/from the 19th Street Station for West
Oakland area residents only. These shuttles will pick up and drop off from
the "kiss & ride" curb on the Chester street side of the West Oakland
station, and will pick up and drop off on Broadway, just before 20th street
