Starting Monday, August 9, AC Transit will begin service of the new Pilot Line 78.
Line 78 starts at Fruitvale BART and operates in Alameda along Santa Clara Avenue and Ralph Appezzato Memorial Parkway (RAMP), making it a great option to get to and from the ferry for commuters who live near the Santa Clara, Webster, and RAMP corridors.
Riders who use Clipper and take both Line 78 and the Alameda Seaplane ferry will enjoy the benefit of a free ride, thanks to a transfer discount equal to the local bus fare applied to the second leg of the trip.
Line 78 is a one-year pilot program and during that time, AC Transit will monitor demand and ridership to help determine the future of this bus line.
For Line 78 schedule information, refer to the below flyer or check AC Transit’s webpage.
In San Francisco, Muni and BART provide convenient connections to and from the San Francisco ferry terminal.
To help plan your trip, use the AC Transit Official mobile app, which features real-time arrival predictions and direct access to customer service.
