Service changes effective Sunday, June 17, 2018
Better. Simpler. Faster.
AC Go represents a significant service expansion and improvement for AC Transit riders in Central Alameda County. Designed and implemented with input from riders, AC Go increases the number of buses and service hours, while streamlining routes for improved reliability.
This phase of AC Go implementation is focused on the Cities of Hayward and San Leandro, and the unincorporated areas of Castro Valley, Ashland, Cherryland, and San Lorenzo. Riders in these communities will experience some bus stop optimizations and route redesigns that share corridors for improved frequency. These changes will create new bus lines and extend routes and service hours to accommodate riders who travel outside typical commute hours.
AC Transit appreciates the support of our communities as we build better, faster, and simpler service.
