BART Offers Free Parking, Adds Even More Buses for Beleaguered Commuters

Posted By on Tue, Jul 2, 2013 at 7:34 AM

This might be your only chance to get free parking and a free ride from BART. Commuters in the East Bay can head on over to the West Oakland Station this morning where BART has added more (free) bus service into San Francisco.

BART has 36 charter buses serving the West Oakland Station where a bus bridge is carting commuters to downtown San Francisco until 9 a.m. The buses will bring commuters back to the station for the afternoon commute between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Commuters can park for free at West Oakland and get a free trip to and from work today.

BART will continue to offer bus bridges at the following four stations from 5 a.m. to 8 a.m. and then return from a stop near the Transbay Terminal in San Francisco from 3 p.m. to 7p.m: El Cerrito del Norte, Walnut Creek, Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont.

Still, BART is advising commuters to work from home, carpool, hitch a ride on the ferry, or take a train as the buses will only accommodate so many commuters today.

Again, they're very sorry for this mess. And who knows how long it will last.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
