New Golden Gate Transit Route 580 Begins!

Posted on December 17, 2015 at 11:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Not to be confused with I-580, Golden Gate Transit has a new line! The 580 travels between Emeryville, Berkeley, Albany and then to San Rafael, with five westbound AM trips and five eastbound PM trips every 30 minutes.


The line went into effect on December 20th, and will be made permanent if its performance is met over the course of the next nine months.

The 580 is Golden gate Transit's only line to Berkeley and Emeryville, so now commuters have a whole new way of reaching the North Bay. The 580 does run parallel to the 40 briefly, but extends much farther south.

Changes to Golden Gate Bridge Lanes on September 8th

Posted on September 7, 2015 at 11:25 PM Comments comments (0)

During the evening commute, drivers on the Golden Gate Bridge will notice a change in the lane structure. Golden Gate Transit has modified lanes on both sides of the bridge, meaning there will be four lanes northbound and two lanes southbound.


Previously, there were three lanes in either direction. This new lane configuration should ease traffic during the evening commute.


Golden Gate Transit will continuously monitor this new lane setup and the impact on southbound traffic. In mid-November, warranted adjustments may be determined.
