City Ushers in Route 19


Local officials including City of Alameda Mayor Trish Spencer celebrated new Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District (AC Transit) Bus Service. 

The launch of bus Line 19 — a new bus route operating between Fruitvale BART and Downtown Oakland via Alameda’s Buena Vista Avenue — took place on Dec. 18 last year. 

The new service represents the second phase of AC Transit’s expansion of service funded via Measure BB. Some $30 million in annual tax revenues will fund a nearly 14 percent increase in overall bus service. 

Line 19 operates from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., seven days a week, with 20-minute frequency during peak periods.
