Who We Are

Seamless Bay Area is a grassroots group of citizens from across the Bay Area.  Many of us have observed the high costs of the Bay Area's transit fragmentation as both customers and as transportation professionals.  However, we are not officially affiliated with any transit agency, company or organization.

Seamless Bay Area was established in May 2017. We hold monthly meetings in Oakland and San Francisco that are open to all. We welcome anyone interested in contributing energy and expertise as we work towards unifying the Bay Area's transportation governance.
