AC Transit To Suspend Bus Service During Curfew
By bigreid on June 1, 2020
OAKLAND, CA – JULY 01: Commuters line up to wait for an AC Transit bus on July 1, 2013 in Oakland, California. Hundreds of thousands of San Francisco Bay Area commuters are scrambling to find ways to work after the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) workers from the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555 went on strike at midnight after contract negotiations with management fell apart on Sunday. Train operators, mechanics, station agents and maintenance workers are seeking a five percent wage increase and are fighting management who want to have workers to begin contributing to their pensions, pay more for health insurance and reduce overtime expenses.

Earlier tonight AC Transit announced that they will be temporarily suspending their night service due to the Alameda County curfew.
From June 1st – June 5th AC Transit will stop their bus services at 7:30pm every night and will continue services at 5:00am the next day.
This means passengers will not be able to board after 7:30pm, but those who are on the bus during that time will be able to get to their destination. Bus operators will be turning off the head sign and interior lighting to show that the bus is out of service for the night.
