Re: “Oakland Launches New Broadway Shuttle

Schedule info is here: http://www.meetdowntownoak.com/shuttle.php

"The "B" runs: between Jack London Square and Grand Avenue
Monday-Friday, 7am-7pm (except on major holidays)
every 10 minutes during commute hours and lunchtime
every 15 minutes all other times"

If the B is successful, then who knows--they might expand the schedule.

I haven't taken it yet, but solves my problem of getting from Rockridge to downtown and Jack London by bus. You can take the 51 from Rockridge, get off at Grand or further down, and then let the free B to take you the rest of the way.

I don't know how many buses are running; therefore I don't know what paint/operational cost AC Transit has, but I think the intent is good and I see it as an investment. An accessible downtown means an incentive to businesses to the area, new or growing businesses means more employment, and tax revenues. Employment opportunities might mean employees may need to take BART or AC Transit to the area, increasing ridership and, hopefully, helps to get these transit agencies in the right direction and might encourage them to support other innovative partnerships as they've done w/ this shuttle.
