SURVEYS: East Bay Regional Park District and AC Transit

The East Bay Regional Park District is updating its Master Plan and welcomes your input via an online survey. It will take about 15 - 20 minutes to complete it.

Your input is very valuable.

The Middle Harbor Park is located in our neighborhood and can be reached by going northwest (past Post Office) on 7th Street to the stoplight at Middle Harbor Road. Proceed through the intersection and take the first right turn into the Middle Harbor Shoreline parking lot.

Public Transit (AC Transit Bus Line 13) no longer services the middle harbor area. Port Staff are seeking alternative solutions through grants and partnerships.

Closed for some time, "Room with a View" is once again available to the public. The train switching tower at Port View Park, adjacent to Middle Harbor Shoreline, is now open Monday - Friday 10AM - 3PM. 

This historic building was moved to the park site and converted to a marvelous informational exhibit about the rail and maritime history of the area. 

AC Transit wants to hear from you! The bus district is developing a comprehensive fare policy and is seeking input from the public before a formal proposal is made. Topics under discussion include goals, principles, pass pricing, transfer rules, timing and level of fare changes, and more.

For information, visit and read the homepage article, “Have Something to Say About Fares?” Then complete the online form or give feedback in a number of other ways.

AC Transit will also hold a public meeting on Thursday, February 17, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at AC Transit General Offices, 1600 Franklin Street, Oakland.
