Sometimes you don't have access to a computer, but need transportation information fast. That's why there's 511 on the phone! Just dial 5-1-1 – it's FREE, and you can find all the info you need to get around the Bay Area.
511 provides transportation information via a state-of-the-art speech recognition system that allows you to find what you need without pressing a button. Simply say "Departure Times," "Public Transportation," "Traffic Conditions," or "What are my choices?" to get started.
511's phone service is available in the entire nine-county Bay Area, on nearly all landline and cellular phones. Below is a list of the Bay Area counties covered by 511:
- Contra Costa
- San Francisco
