History of East Bay Transit Exhibit at the Oakland History Room

AC Transit e-News

The Oakland History Room at the main library is currently exhibiting a history of East Bay transit through the end of November. The exhibit chronicles the formation of AC Transit, BART, and the ferry system in photos, newspaper clippings, and memorabilia. Check out the exhibit to see how the Key System, Southern Pacific's Big Red Cars, and the extensive Bay Area ferry service became the public transit system that we use and enjoy today.

The Oakland History Room is on the second floor of the Oakland Main Library at 125 14th Street in downtown Oakland. Admission is free. Hours of operation are

Monday: 10:00am–5:30pm
