What is Night School

Night School is a bus service between San Francisco and the East Bay. We use off-duty school buses to provide a safe, reliable, and affordable way for nightlife patrons and workers to get home. We’re going to make it like BART never stops running.

Your Late-Night Ride Home

Initial service is Friday and Saturday night from midnight to 4 am between the Mission (Valencia & 18th) and Oakland (Telegraph & 17th).  More stops coming soon. Seating is first come, first served.

Two Ways to Ride

Save your payment information in your profile and get access to Night School buses for $8 per ride, or purchase a monthly membership and get unlimited access to Night School buses for $15.

Safe & Friendly

In addition to the driver, each Night School bus has a “conductor” whose job it is tosupervise boarding and maintain a comfortable and safe environment for all riders.  Drinking is prohibited on all buses.  Riders disobeying instructions from the conductor or driver will have their membership revoked.

App Makes Boarding Easy

Night School’s app tracks bus locations in real time, eliminating waiting and guesswork.  It also speeds boarding by passing information to the conductor via Bluetooth Low Energy.  Download the iOS app or sign up to be notified when we release the Android app.

Giving Back

Night School donates 5% of profits to the Great Oakland Public Schools Leadership Center to support their Teacher Fellowship Program and campaign to recruit, train and retain effective teachers in Oakland.
