Commonly called "The Free B" or just "The B" shuttle, the Free Broadway Shuttle provides free public transit between BART, Jack London Square, and points around Downtown Oakland.
Developed as a trial project, it has been a runaway success and had service expanded in the last couple years. An enterprising Stanford design student has proposed a plan to take the bus route and turn it into light rail [source].
The Shuttle may inform transit infrastructure decisions in the Broadway Valdez District Specific Plan.
