The BRT is installing new sidewalks and more than 500 wheelchair-accessible curb ramps along the 9.5-mile corridor between downtown Oakland and the San Leandro BART Station.


Electricians work to energize one of the 37 new traffic signals the BRT has installed between Oakland and San Leandro. The new signals will help calm traffic and make streets safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.

Regular construction updates are also available on the BRT website in our Construction section. Construction updates are also available on our social media platforms: @rideactbrt.
