    The Free Broadway Shuttle makes Downtown Oakland more accessible and equitable, providing safe and free mobility to all throughout Jack London, Chinatown, Uptown, Downtown, Old Oakland, and even Broadway/Valdez. It serves both a transportation and economic development role, providing important connections for customers and businesses, and also for workers and commuters between the neighborhoods and modes of transit-- Train, BART, Ferry, and AC Transit. The critical service is even more valuable today as other mobility options proliferate-- for many of those on board, scooters, mopeds, or shared rides are not physically or financially possible. Jack London Improvement District joins a diverse group of public and private champions and contributors to the service, and we are committed to working with the City's DOT and other agencies to sustain and expand the B. - Savlan Hauser, Executive Director Jack London Improvement District and Chair Oakland BID Alliance
