Business Improvement District (BID Employer)

How is LINKS Funded?

Funding for LINKS comes from grants, the City of San Leandro, business and property-owner partnerships, and the West San Leandro Business Improvement District (BID). The BID covers about 70% of the total operating budget and is made up of businesses along the LINKS route.

Businesses with 50+ employees will comply with new air quality rules and save money.

Beginning in 2014, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District is implementing a new Commuter Benefits Program that requires all employers with 50 or more full-time employees to provide commuter benefits to their employees. To comply with the Program, employers must select one (or more) of four commuter benefit options and register with the program by September 30, 2014. Participation in the LINKS Business Improvement District satisfies Option 3 (“Employer Provided Transit”) under the new BAAQMD program, allowing businesses to save both time and money.


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.
