Transportation

The Tri-Valley is serviced by WHEELS, operated by LAVTA, formerly called Tri-Valley Transit, a bus agency that operates local bus service in addition to feeder service to Hacienda Business Park, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Las Positas College, Stoneridge Mall, and Dublin/Pleasanton Bart station.

Two major highways, interstates 580 and 680 cross the Tri-Valley area. Interstate 580 runs east-west, connecting the area to the Central Valley to the east and the San Francisco Bay area in the west. Interstate 680 runs north-south, connecting the area to the San Francisco Bay area in the south, and the Concord-Walnut Creek area in the north. The two interstates cross on the border of Dublin and Pleasanton.

The Tri-Valley area is also serviced by BART, offering service to the inner San Francisco Bay area by way of Oakland, with one existing stop at the Dublin/Pleasanton terminus station. A second stop is under construction, tentatively named West Dublin/Pleasanton, about one mile west of the existing station. This new stop is the 44th station in the BART system, and the first infill station on an existing line. BART plans include eventually extending the line to Livermore in the near future, and possibly into the Central Valley at Tracy in the distant future.
