The Downtown Broadway (B) Shuttle Arrives

The "B" Shuttle runs between Jack London Square and Grand Avenue, Monday-Friday, run from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (except on major holidays) every 10 minutes during peak times or every 15 minutes during non-peak times.

Whether its Bocanova for Pan-American cuisine, Bakesale Betty's famous fried chicken sandwich, sushi at Ozumo, California-infused Southern specialties at Pican or Cajun-Creole delights at Miss Pearl's Jam House there’s no better way to get to Jack London Square for lunch or early dinner?

Look for the bright and colorful "B" signs along Broadway.

Jack London Square is about 1.5 miles from Uptown and less than a mile from the downtown core around City Hall and City Center, an office complex encompassing more than 3.5 million square feet of office space.

Along that stretch, pedestrians pass by Old Oakland and Chinatown and under an overpass for Interstate 880.

SF Business Times reporter Blanca Torrres shares her experience of catching BART to Oakland, riding the shuttle and what she did at Jack London Square, here.

This shuttle was made possible by a grant from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District that provides $1 million over two years, with the rest of the operating cost between $700,000 and $850,000 per year from sources that include the developers of Jack London Square, city funds and the Downtown and Lake Merritt-Uptown Community Benefit Districts.
