BART: The Ashby station is a stop on the Richmond/Fremont and Richmond/Millbrae lines. As you come out of the fare gates in the station, turn east toward the Ed Roberts Campus signs. You can take the elevator (in the east wall of the station, labeled "To Adeline St."), or you can walk past the elevator toward the "Ed Roberts Campus" basement entrance, then turn right, then walk past the campus entrance to the stairs labeled "To Adeline St," and go up the stairs. Both the elevator and stairs deliver you to the sidewalk directly in front of the Ed Roberts building.
Bus: AC Transit bus #12 (on Martin Luther King Jr. Way), #49 (on Ashby Ave), and the F bus (on Adeline St) all stop near the Ed Roberts Campus building. Go to http://www.511.org/default.asp or call 511 to get route details, time schedules, and costs.

Go east on Ashby Ave. Continue past Martin Luther King Jr Way and the west parking lot of the Ashby BART station. Turn right onto Adeline St, then follow the directions in the "From All Directions" paragraph below.
From All Directions: Once you are on Adeline St, it is only 1½ blocks to the Ed Roberts Campus building (on your left). Just after the building, there is a break in the Adeline St traffic island at Woolsey Street. You can either turn onto Woolsey to reach parking on surrounding streets, or make a U-turn to get to the Ed Roberts loading zones (at the front and back of the building) and to parking in the east BART station parking lot (behind the Ed Roberts building).
Parking: There is a BART parking lot (free on Saturdays) behind the Ed Roberts building. The only entrance to the lot is a small driveway by the north side of the building. You can also park on surrounding streets; different blocks (and different parts of the same block) may have different rules so read the signs carefully. If the weather is bad, you may find a space in the west BART parking lot; in good weather, that lot is filled with Flea Market vendors and customers.
Loading Zones & Disabled Access: There is a passenger loading zone in front of the Ed Roberts main entrance on Adeline St. The BART lot behind the Ed Roberts building includes approximately 35 spaces for disabled parking & loading zone use, and about 150 regular spaces. The BART station elevator delivers you very close to the Ed Roberts front door; call ahead to make sure the elevator is working properly. The Ed Roberts building itself was designed from the ground up to have good accessibility.Close Window
