Bus Rapid Transit

After years of planning, BRT construction has officially started along International Blvd between 82nd and 94th Avenues. Construction of the East Bay Bus Rapid Transit Project (BRT) is officially underway! 

BRT is often called “light rail on wheels” because it brings the frequency, safety and reliability of light rail to the bus rider. BRT will run a 9.5-mile corridor between downtown Oakland and San Leandro BART, mostly along International Blvd in Oakland and E. 14th Street in San Leandro.

Bus Rapid Transit brings the best of transit experiences from around the globe and will revolutionize public transit in the East Bay.  This $178 million investment in our community improves regional connectivity and will relieve traffic congestion while enhancing one of the East Bay’s most diverse cultural corridors.

BRT construction may involve paving, traffic signals, tree removals, sidewalks, curb ramps, and construction of BRT stations.

In an effort to minimize disruptions to the community, underground sewer and utility services were previously relocated. New construction along the corridor will happen over six separately timed stages.
