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.
