Broadway Shuttle Safe Through 2014, Adds Evening Hours

Oakland’s free Broadway Shuttle program is sticking around for at least another couple years, and beginning in 2013 the green buses will cruise downtown streets for three more hours each weekday evening. That’s all thanks to a $723,000 grant announced yesterday from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and Alameda County Transportation Commission. The grant also offsets $250,000 lost when California Governor Jerry Brown eliminated state funding of local redevelopment agencies late last year.
