Richmond is served by I-80 from San Francisco, Vallejo and Sacramento, I-580 from Berkeley, Marin County and Oakland and Richmond Parkway skirting most of town as a bypass. Public transportation is provided with an intermodal transit center comprising BART and Amtrak, with local buses run by AC Transit. But due to the horrible reputation of Richmond, it is best recommended to exit BART from one of the two stations in El Cerrito.

  • Amtrak, 1700 Nevin Ave. Two Amtrak routes service Richmond, the Capitol Corridor and the San Joaquin. The station is co-located at the BART platform. There is no ticket service, no baggage checking, and no luggage assistance.
