Ground Transportation


Emery Go Round is a free bus shuttle service connecting Emeryville's employers and shopping centers with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), 7 days a week. The Emery Go Round runs from the MacArthur BART station. NextBus provides real time arrival / departure information for each shuttle stop.

In addition, AC Transit, the East Bay's regional mass transit provider has routes through Emeryville, connecting to various regional destinations.

Beginning December 23, 2018, service changes go into effect on a number of AC Transit local and Transbay lines. Below is a list of changes. Please note that we have added new trips on Transbay lines C, FS, G, H, J, P, SB, V and W.

Additionally, AC Transit continues to improve Transbay service for our customers. This includes new double decker buses to alleviate overcrowding, streamlined routes for more efficient service, and new trips.  Therefore, to support these service improvements and to cover capital obligations for the new Salesforce Transit Center, effective January 1, the new Transbay fare will increase to $5.50 for adults and $2.75 for youth, seniors, and the disabled. You can read more about these changes here.

For more information on all changes, please visit www.actransit.org. The information on our website is available in Spanish and Chinese.

TransitInfo offers integrated transit information covering a wide service area in the East Bay, including a trip planner feature.
