Alternate Routes When The Bay Bridge Is Closed


Take alternate routes, ride transit, carpool, or telecommute

The Best bet for getting around Bay Bridge closures is BART. Please make plans to arrive earlier or later than the peak commute hours to avoid the heaviest traffic. Also, please take the bus to the BART station, or have someone drop you off, as parking in BART lots is limited.

Transit Alternatives

Try Carpooling

Fewer cars traveling through the area will result in less congestion.

  • Meet your carpool partner at a park-n-ride lot.
  • Try casual carpooling. There are numerous additional casual carpool locations in the north-western East Bay that may also work for you and your carpool partner. Click here for a link to the Bay Area casual carpool website.


Ask your employer if you can telecommute on a temporary basis. You can either work from home during rush hour and then go into work, or work from home all day. Consider holding meetings via conference call, too.
