Go Green - Take Transit

Go Green, Take Transit - ferry photo

One way to reduce driving is to take the bus, train or ferry. There are dozens of public transit providers in the Bay Area and the 511 Transit Trip Planner can help you find your way. The Trip Planner includes route and schedule information for all Bay Area transit operators, with additional links to information for shuttle services and providers outside the region. Wherever you're going, 511 Transit is the place to start.



Want to green your commute? Ridesharing is 2-6 people in a carpool or 7-15 people in a vanpool. It’s a green travel alternative because you help reduce the total number of cars on the road. You save time and money and the earth gets a breath of fresh air.
