Bus 33 Brings Piedmonters Home At Night

A few Piedmonters tried the new nighttime bus service to Piedmont from BART in its first two weeks of service.  One rider described it as a “private limousine” when there were no other passengers. At the end of the second week, use picked up.  According to a Piedmont couple returning from an evening at the San Francisco Ballet at the end of the second week, there were eight passengers on the 10:30 p.m. bus from BART’s 12th Street Oakland City Center station. To the couple’s surprise, they were at home at the same time they normally arrive when driving from the Rockridge BART station parking lot.

The new Bus 33 nighttime service to Piedmont from BART and downtown Oakland restaurants and theaters will allow Piedmonters to enjoy cultural events and entertainment car-free and return home until midnight Monday through Saturday and until 11 p.m. on Sunday.

  1. By the way, the 33 isn’t the only bus that serves Piedmont. The 12 on Grand goes to 19th st. Bart and to Berkeley the other way. The 29 (formerly 26) serves the Harvard, Ranleigh, Oakmont, area on Lakeshore and goes to Civic center Bart. Their frequency of service is good during commute hours, but not so hot other times.
