Leave the Car at Home with Extended New Year’s Eve Service on the Broadway Shuttle
If you’re planning to ring in 2013 with a night on the town, but want to avoid the hassles of driving and parking, the City of Oakland has the perfect solution: The Broadway Shuttle – or the “Free B” – as it’s affectionately known. The “B” is Oakland’s free bus service running along Broadway, from Jack London Square to 27th Street in Koreatown/Northgate.
Thanks to special funding from AC Transit and the City of Oakland, the shuttle will run extended service from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. (as it does every Friday and Saturday night) on New Year’s Eve, Monday, December 31.
If you’re connecting to BART, trains will run until 3 a.m., and if you’re really a night owl, you can connect to a number of AC Transit All Nighter bus lines, including lines 800, 801, 802, 805, 840, and 851 to destinations from Richmond south to Fremont, including downtown Berkeley.

FYI, the Broadway Shuttle will run on its normal schedule Friday, December 28, and Saturday, December 29. The shuttle will not operate at all New Year’s Day.
