This week on Transit Accessible Attractions we will be featuring Stoneridge Mall.
Stoneridge Mall features about 165 stores, including Macy's, Sears, JCPenney, and Nordstrom. Stoneridge Mall serves the local communites of Pleasanton, Dublin, San Ramon, Livermore and Danville. The mall also has many great restaurants such as the California Pizza Kitchen and the Cheesecake Factory, as well as many fast food restaurants.
Stoneridge Mall is served by WHEELS Bus Routes 3, 10, 53, 70XV, and RAPID, as well as great access to BART.
The 3 is a loop service that runs between East Dublin/Pleasanton BART, Stoneridge Mall, West Dublin and back to East Dublin/Pleasanton BART (clockwise). During the morning, the 3 runs clockwise and during the evening, the 3 runs counterclockwise.
The 10 runs limited service to Stoneridge Mall, only running there from 5 AM to 8 AM. During the rest of the day, the 10 runs between East Dublin/Pleasanton BART to Downtown Livermore and beyond.
The 53 travels from Pleasanton ACE Station to Stoneridge Mall, continuing back to ACE. This route does not operate in the middle of the day. Buses on this line may wait up to 30 minutes for late-arriving ACE Trains in the morning, but not in the evening.
The 70XV provides very limited service to Stoneridge Mall, arriving once in the morning and once in the evening. The 70XV travels from Pleasant Hill BART to Walnut Creek BART, continues on I-680, reaches Stoneridge Mall, and ends at East Dublin/Pleasanton BART. The 70XV travels back in the evening.
The best way to reach Stoneridge Mall from Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore is the RAPID. Run by LAVTA (WHEELS), the RAPID runs every 15 minutes all day, every day (except weekends), and features hybrid electric buses.
The RAPID travels from Stoneridge Mall to East Dublin/Pleasanton BART to Downtown Livermore, and eventually terminates at Sandia/Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories.
Stoneridge Mall is also accessible by BART, with West Dublin/Pleasanton Station located right next to Stoneridge Mall. Once you have exited the train, proceed through the faregates and walk through the Pleasanton Bridge (west side of the station). The Pleasanton Bridge drops you across the street from Stoneridge Mall. You can also transfer to WHEELS buses from here.
Stay tuned next week to see which attraction we'll feature next!
