Bay Bridge Zuckermann Bicycle/Pedestrian Path

Pedestrians and cyclists can now travel across the new East Span of the San Francisco - Oakland Bay Bridge. To ensure user safety, the 15.5-foot-wide path has one lane in each direction for bicyclists and an outside lane designated for walkers. The bike and pedestrian path is named after the late East Bay Bicycle Coalition founder and Bay Bridge Trail advocate, Alex Zuckermann. A plaque bearing his name is located on the trail.

Two access points provide a direct route to the bicycle and pedestrian path from the East Bay: One at Shellmound Street in Emeryville, just outside the IKEA store; a second at the historic Bridge Yard building at 210 Burma Road in Oakland.

  • Path Days of Operation: Monday through Sunday
  • Current Path Hours: 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM

View more information about the Zuckermann Path, East Bay access points and Path facilities on the Bay Bridge's official website.

Yerba Buena Island Vista Point

The YBI Vista Point is open to cyclists and pedestrians weekdays and weekends on the same schedule as the Zuckermann Path and serves as the access point onto the Path from Yerba Buena Island. Featuring restrooms, benches, a hydration station and bike racks, Vista Point offers sweeping views of the East Span of the Bay Bridge, San Francisco Bay and Oakland. The Vista Point project was spearheaded by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, in cooperation with MTC's Bay Area Toll Authority (BATA), Caltrans and the Treasure Island Development Authority.

  • YBI Vista Point Hours: Open 7 days a week during daylight hours.

YBI Vista Point-Treasure Island Shuttle

On weekends and holidays a free Shuttle with bicycle trailer runs between the YBI Vista Point and the corner of Avenue of Palms at 9th Street on Treasure Island.

Continuing into San Francisco

At this time, there is not a bicycle/pedestrian connection along the Bay Bridge Western Span between Yerba Buena Island and San Francisco.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's MUNI 25-Treasure Island bus line serves the Islands, departing downtown San Francisco from the temporary Transbay Terminal, Howard Street at Beale Street with multiple stops throughout Treasure Island. MUNI 25 buses are equipped with bicycle racks. There are currently no MUNI 25 stops on Yerba Buena Island.
