Ferry Shuttles, Extra Service Set Up for BART Strike

The City of Alameda and Metropolitan Transportation Commission has set up a shuttle service to take Alameda commuters to ferry terminals on both islands, should a BART strike take place on Monday, July 1, or over the following days.

On Bay Farm, a free shuttle will circulate every 15 minutes from 6-10 a.m. and 4-8 p.m. The route on Bay Farm goes from the Harbor Bay Ferry Terminal down Mecartney Road, along Island Drive, down Robert Davey Jr. Drive and then along Aughinbaugh Way en route to the ferry terminal.

On Alameda’s Main Island, a free shuttle will circulate every 20 minutes at the same times. The route is concentrated on the West End. It will go from the Ferry Terminal on Main Street to Webster and then back to the terminal via Atlantic Avenue.

Extra ferries will be available from Alameda’s Main Ferry Terminal to San Francisco and from the Main Terminal to South San Francisco.
