If you just moved to the East Bay in San Francisco with a job in the city, you may be wondering how you will manage such a long commute to and from work every single morning.

Do not worry because you have some good commute choices. First, consider using the BART train to take you to and from your home and office in downtown San Francisco.

Bow what if the BART parking lot is always full and you can never find a parking space? Well that is a huge headache and a problem for lots of people. But there is a solution and that is the Park and Ride lots.

Park and Ride lots are places where you can park your car in a big parking lot and then get on a bus to take you to a nearby transit location, like a BART train station.

You can find a list of Bay Area Park and Ride locations at this link. And if you are thinking about using BART as part of your trip, make sure to visit the BART Transit Connections page to find out how BART connects with other transit operators.

One example of a Park and Ride lot to BART trip is using the Tri Delta Transit Express Route 300 which connects BART to Park and Ride lots in Pittsburg, Antioch, Brentwood and Discovery Bay. Find out more at this page.

Consider using a free Park and Ride lot to save time, stress and money.
