The City of Oakland’s popular Broadway Shuttle received a $723,000 Lifeline Transportation Program grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Alameda County Transportation Commission, ensuring that the iconic green vehicles will continue cruising along Broadway through calendar year 2014. Beginning in 2013, the shuttle will add three hours of evening service Monday through Thursday. That means downtown commuters working late shifts can use transit to get home, and folks enjoying downtown’s bustling nightlife and dining scenes will have this free transit option until 10 p.m. In addition to the new hours, the grant offsets the loss of redevelopment funds for the shuttle’s existing Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. service. The shuttle will also continue operating to 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
