The below information has been updated as of 2/13/2015
From Pleasant Hill BART: County Connection #7 (either direction and free as of 2/16/2015) to the stop on Via Monte just after the bus makes a right hand turn from Ygnacio Valley Road. Because that part of the route is a loop, you get off and on at the same stop. The hours it runs are approximately 7 to 10 am and 3 to 7 pm. The good news is that the frequency is every fifteen minutes and the walk is short – just across one intersection.
(Returning is the same in reverse, as one bus stop is both the drop off and pick up)
From Walnut Creek BART: Catch THE #1 County Connection bus at WC BART and exit at the first stop after the left hand turn from Ygnacio Valley Road onto N Wiget. Continue on foot for about a 10 minute walk on Ygnacio Valley Road to the hospital. This bus runs all day from about 7am to about 6:30pm.
NOTE: BART and our local bus system, County Connection, do require all but guide and other service animals be in fully closed carriers. Nearby bus systems, TriDelta (East County), WestCat (West County), AC Transit (Alameda County) all have similar rules. Wheels (Livermore Amador Valley Transit) has a no pets rule. Use discretion on size.
