AC Transit Service Changes
Effective Sunday, August 12, 2018

Highlights of changes:

  • Transbay lines to San Francisco are moving from the Transbay Temporary Terminal into the new Salesforce Transit Center! The new center is located one block from the Transbay Temporary Terminal, bounded by Mission St., Howard St., Beale St., and 2nd Street.
  • Line 217 will now serve Warm Springs/South Fremont BART.
  • Lines 600-699 are restored for the school year, and additional trips serving schools on lines 33, 51A, 72M, 76, 95, and 97 designed to serve schools are also restored.

Some other changes are being made to several Transbay lines, in order to make service more efficient:

  • Some stops are being consolidated on most Transbay lines,
  • Most Transbay lines will serve Transbay passengers only, and
  • Routing changes are being made to Lines L and S
