New! Catch a Free Ride on the 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle

There’s always something happening in Downtown Alameda during the 2nd Friday ArtWalks: artist receptions, live music and dancing or shopping and dining. And now the 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle makes it even easier to experience a fun-filled evening. 

The new 2nd Friday ArtWalk Shuttle loops around the Island from 6 to 9 p.m. with several stops in Oakland’s Jingletown and along Park and Webster streets. Guests can go from venue to venue at their own pace by walking or catching a ride on the hourly loop shuttle.
