Oakland Smart Commute

Any way you spin it, Oakland Smart Commute makes sense

Oakland is the region's premier medical, educational and cultural center.

It is also a vibrant city neighborhood and commercial district. This diverse concentration of urban life makes Oakland the second largest concentration of daytime population in the region. Traffic congestion is a challenge. Every alternative commuting effort counts and will aid in reducing traffic congestion, helping to improve air quality and can help save money for the daily commuter.


Multimodal Resource Map

This multimodal trip planning resource from Oakland Transportation Management Association is designed to help commuters Know Before You Go when traveling to and from Pittsburgh's Oakland neighborhood – through which more than 100,000 pedestrians and 75,000 vehicles travel every day. Use the map to identify the location and get directions to public parking lots and garages (with hours of operation and estimated rates), transit stops, micromobility hubs, bike share stations, bicycle storage racks, and other multimodal transportation resources.
