The Alameda-Contra Costa County Transit District announced Friday that it will stop operating its free shuttles next week to the mass COVID-19 vaccination site at the Oakland Coliseum.

The shuttle, which has been operating since the vaccination site opened in mid-February, will cease operations on Sunday after the California Office of Emergency Services, which has been jointly operating the vaccination site with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, informed AC Transit that it was no longer necessary.

According to AC Transit, the shuttle has helped more than 3,500 East Bay residents get vaccinated since the site opened.

A non-AC Transit shuttle will still be available via the OES, according to the transit agency, and transportation inquiries should be directed to

AC Transit Line 73 will also continue operating between the Eastmont Transit Center and the Oakland International Airport, with a stop at the Coliseum BART station.

The shuttles will discontinue at 7 p.m. Sunday, according to AC Transit.
