Resources for Getting to the East Bay during the Bay Bridge Closure

Tuesday, August 27, 2013

The Bay Bridge will be closed starting Wednesday, August 28th at 8pm, and re-open Tuesday, September 3rd at 5am.

Consider these transportation options when planning your commute and regional travel this week.

Take Transit. BART, AC Transit, Muni and ferries will all have regular or increased service during the bridge closure. You can use your clipper cards for all of these options, so  make sure to add cash value to your card. Go to for updates on service and trip planning tools. 

Find a Carpool or Vanpool. If you have to drive across the Bay, use the alternate bridges and pool up! Find a carpool through your own social network or through the 511 Ridematching service. You can also check this list of vanpools with available seats.
