LINKS SHUTTLE

Since its inception in 2001, the LINKS shuttle has served businesses in West San Leandro by providing a free transportation link between places of employment and the Downtown San Leandro BART Station. LINKS receives overwhelmingly positive feedback from riders and ridership has grown over the past decade. LINKS is funded through a variety of sources including regional grants. A significant portion of the funding comes from a Business Improvement District (BID) that is formed by businesses within 1/4 mile of the shuttle route.

SERVICE ENHANCEMENTS

In March 2015, the LINKS service was divided into a North and South Loop and two buses were added to the service. The new service will provide shorter headways, faster round-trip rides and connections to businesses that previously could not access LINKS.
Wow, I can’t believe how easy it is to hop aboard and get exactly where I want to go. San Leandro isn’t that big, but the LINKS sure makes it easier getting around. Everyone is pleasant, including the driver, not to mention it’s always clean and FREE!
