Getting There: 

BART – In 2017, BART will once again be running extra trains through Oakland all day and modified routes to accommodate parade and rally attendants. The best tips are to avoid Lake Merritt station (it’s smaller than the 19th St. station and some trains after 8:30 am may skip Lake Merritt altogether) and be aware that service won’t match the published schedules. Read the BART FAQ.

Heading to Downtown Oakland

  • The Lake Merritt BART Station will be in the epicenter of the celebration, so it’s best to avoid it. BART strongly suggests you take trains to either 12th Street or 19th Street stations in Oakland. They are bigger and they’re right along the parade route, so you’ll have more elbow room. They will also be your best options for starting your trip home.
  • Trains coming from Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont Warm Springs towards Oakland may skip Lake Merritt after 8:30 am if the rally zone has reached capacity and has closed or if the station becomes too crowded. Listen to announcements and use 12th or 19th Street instead.

BART Service Changes

  • The Pittsburg/Bay Point morning service WILL NOT match the regular published schedule. Some trains will be rerouted to other crowded areas in the system.
  • After 8 am, every other train from the Warm Springs to Daly City line will not go to San Francisco and instead go to Downtown Oakland to serve the parade route. These trains will terminate at MacArthur Station.
  • At any time, BART may need to skip a station due to crowding, or hold riders outside the fare gates and wait until the platform clears to allow riders to enter the paid area.

AC Transit – Details about taking AC Transit to the parade festivities, including information about bus detours in downtown Oakland, should available online at www.actransit.org. We’ll update this post with more information as it becomes available.
