BRT Route

In addition to getting people where they need to go quickly, the East Bay BRT route will take riders to some of the most fascinating and historical neighborhoods in the Bay Area. Just a few examples include:

  • Downtown Oakland’s emerging tech hub and landmark entertainment venues and eateries for every taste;
  • Oakland Chinatown, the third largest Chinatown in America. Also in the area, the Oakland Museum of California and Laney College, where about 14,000 students are enrolled;
  • The dynamic Fruitvale with its myriad Latin-inspired restaurants and shops centered along International Boulevard, the approximate mid-point for the BRT route;
  • The BRT route leads to San Leandro’s well-established retail district, City Hall and the San Leandro Transit Center.
