Bay Bridge Closure August 28 to September 3
Due to the final construction and opening of the new San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge eastern span, the Bay Bridge will be closed from 8 p.m. Wednesday evening, August 28, through 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, September 3.
No buses will operate across the bridge from San Francisco to the East Bay after 7:10 p.m. on Wednesday through the opening on Tuesday morning. Instead, they will operate in the East Bay only by detouring to four BART stations (see table below) to drop off passengers going to San Francisco and pick up passengers coming from San Francisco.
The table below shows the BART station to which each transbay line will detour. San Francisco-bound passengers should be prepared to pay a local AC Transit fare on their transbay bus and then the applicable BART fare to downtown San Francisco. Returning from San Francisco, buses will depart their respective BART stations 20 minutes after their scheduled Transbay Temporary Terminal departure times. Cash-paying passengers can get a BART-to-Bus transfer at the East Bay BART station (before exiting the BART fare gates) to receive a $.25 discount off the local AC Transit fare. Clipper card holders will automatically reive the BART-to-Bus transfer discount.
|Transbay Line||BART Station||BART one way fare (from Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell, or Civic Center stations)|
|S, SB||Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART (Find your bus)||$3.85|
|B, C, CB, E, J, NX, NX1, NX2, NX3, NX4, NXC, P, V, Z||MacArthur BART (Find your bus)||$3.35|
|FS, G, H, L, LA, LC||North Berkeley BART (Find your bus)||$3.75|
|F, NL, O, OX, W||West Oakland BART (Find your bus)||$2.90|
Keep in mind, it may be more convenient to take local service to the nearest BART station instead of a transbay line to the detour station. We encourage passengers to use one of AC Transit’s online trip-planning features at www.actransit.org, or check out the system map and schedule to determine the most direct route.

All-Nighter Line 800 riders: BART will run trains on a 24-hour basis beginning the night of Wednesday, August 28 until the night of Monday, September 2. However, between 1 a.m. and 4 a.m. Tuesday morning, September 3, there will be no transit service to and from San Francisco. Plan ahead and make special arrangements.
