Bear Transit is the bus service operated by the Department of Parking and Transportation of the University of California, Berkeley.[1] Its fleet includes a combination of shuttle vans and passenger buses (small and regular-sized), with all of its passenger buses formerly owned by AC Transit. In the early 2000s the passenger buses used were refurbished by AC Transit. Bear Transit connects various areas of the university, including student housing, the main campus, the Hill area, Downtown Berkeley (including Berkeley BART), and distant locations such as Lawrence Hall of Science in the East Bay Hills and the Clark Kerr Campus south of the main campus. It also provides shuttle service to the Richmond Field Station (RFS), a research facility also owned by the University, located in Richmond.

Routes and services

Bear Transit operates five daytime and five nighttime routes that operate mostly around the UC Berkeley Campus (with one exception: the RFS line, described later), all of which serve Berkeley BART Station.[2]

On all Cal football home games, game day shuttles carry students and visitors to the California Memorial Stadium two hours before and one hour after games start. Return service after the games, though, is limited.[3]
