Mission Bay Updates

All routes are experiencing delays of 10 to 30 minutes due to the Third St. Bridge closure.  This is affecting the West route in particular.  We are picking up Berry St. passengers on the EAST side of the street in the morning only, in an effort to avoid the northbound bottleneck over the 4th St. bridge. West riders can also take an EAST bus and get off at UCSF's hub on 4th Street for the next 8 days.  


Because we're using several detours, GPS predictions are also off.  The bridge is slated to re-open on January 26th; in the meantime, we're doing the best we can and appreciate your patience.  


The Mission Bay Shuttle has relocated to Civic Center BART and its TransBay stops.  Please see timetables and route maps under the Routes tabs for more information.
