Major Changes to San Francisco Bus Service Starting May 1

Bus service

On May 1, 2016, Capitol Corridor will implement a new schedule and route for bus service between Emeryville and San Francisco. Key changes include the elimination of service to the Caltrain, Moscone Center, and Civic Center stops and schedule modifications to service at the Financial District and Pier 39 stops. Service to the Transbay Temporary Terminal will be unchanged and will likely see improved on-time performance as a result of the new routing. To learn more about the upcoming schedule and route change, read the news story on our website.
