Campus launches BART shuttle

17 January 2001

The campus is launching a free, direct shuttle service to and from the Rockridge BART station beginning Monday, Jan. 22.

The new service is the result of ongoing efforts by Chancellor Berdahl and Berkeley City Council member Polly Armstrong to find ways to reduce campus commuter traffic and relieve congestion on city streets.

The new morning service will be in partnership with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, which currently runs a shuttle from Rockridge BART. Later service, which will be offered throughout the day and evening, will be run by AC Transit. Travel in both directions is expected to take 15 minutes.

Students, staff and faculty will be able ride the shuttles for free by displaying campus picture ID cards. The campus's Office of Parking and Transportation is coordinating with LBNL and AC Transit and is managing the new service. Details on the schedule are being finalized this week. Check the campus's news page at for the most up-to-date information on the new shuttle.
