*NEW* Improved BART Connections

Faster, Easier BART connections

To better serve commuters who travel on BART, we’re making the connection between BART and UCSF smoother and faster. Expanding service to regional transit hubs aligns with our goals to improve transportation options for UCSF staff, faculty, students, patients, and visitors. 

Parnassus Heights | BART
UCSF’s Lime shuttle route will include a stop at the 16th Street BART station during peak commute hours, providing a direct connection between Parnassus Heights and BART (no transfer required). During midday, the Lime route will not stop at BART, but will continue to serve riders between Mission Center Building (MCB) and Parnassus Heights with a stop at Buchanan Dental.

Where to catch the Lime at BART
In the mornings, the Lime shuttle will stop at BART at: 2970 16th Street (between Mission St. and Capp St.)
In the evenings, the Lime shuttle will stop at BART at: 3001 16th Street (between Mission St. and Hoff St.)
For more information, view map of the Lime shuttle stop locations at BART.

Mission Bay | BART
Mission Center Building (MCB) | BART

Beginning June 1, connections between BART and Mission Bay, and BART and MCB, will be faster with increased capacity. Red shuttles will provide direct non-stop service from Mission Bay to the 16th St. BART station only, effectively making all Red shuttles Red Express shuttles. This change reflects rider feedback and ridership data collected during regular service operations, prior to COVID-19 impacts.

For MCB riders, a new Purple shuttle will be introduced that will travel between MCB and BART.

After-hours On-Demand Service to be Temporarily Discontinued
The Jitney will continue to Operate at Mission Bay

The after-hours and weekend on-demand service, known as the Mission Bay Local and Parnassus East/West routes, will be temporarily discontinued effective July 1, due to extremely low ridership.

The Mission Bay Jitney will continue to offer on-demand shuttle service on weekdays from 8:00 am—5:00 pm and will transport riders within a ½ mile of the Mission Bay campus.

We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to returning the service when ridership volume warrants reinstatement. If this causes a hardship for your commute, please contact us at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

To request a ride, click here or call 415.915.4283.
