AC Transit boosts East Bay, Transbay service amid rising demand – SFBay

Changes to public transportation will come to the East Bay starting Sunday when the Alameda-Contra Costa transit district, better known as AC Transit, changes service.

The number of passengers is steadily increasing and now stands at 85 percent from pre-plague levels, and AC Transit is changing the service to meet additional demand, agency officials said.

The Transbay service on the FS line will be partially restored with two trips a day in each direction. Line 60 service will be extended from Chabot College to South Hayward BART Station.

The weekday service on Line 52, which travels toward the University of California at Berkeley and the University Village, is returned to the hours and frequency before the plague.

Pre-epidemic service will also be restored on Line 74, which operates on weekdays from Ford Point to Richmond and via Castro Ranch near El Sobrante.

Hours are extended by eight more AC Transit lines. For a complete list of changes, people can visit https://content.govdelivery.com/accounts/ACTRANSIT/bulletins/2fd24ae.

Face coverage is still required on buses for all passengers, regardless of the vaccination status.
