Riding the Six
A daily bus commute through Berkeley and Oakland, California
In 2017, I would walk from my Berkeley, California home to a bus stop on Telegraph Avenue for the 20-minute daily bus ride to and from work in downtown Oakland. Alameda County Transit's #6 bus passes through several Berkeley and Oakland neighborhoods, and its passengers reflect the diversity of the communities it serves. From students and tech workers to elderly shoppers of all ethnicities, the #6 bus delivers all to destinations along Telegraph Avenue.
