Bay Bridge Toll to bike path?

Some of the AC Transit transbay lines stop eastbound at the Bay Bridge Toll stop. Google Maps suggests I can get to the bike path by bike from there.

Is that true? No lanes of traffic to cross?

The bus stop shelter thing is practically in the bike trail. Couldn't be simpler.

From a westbound bus though you'd have to get off earlier and work your way through the industrial streets to the trail. Not too bad on a weekend.

If you want a longer ride - you can start at the Ikea in Emeryville. The F or the J stop there. Can't remember which one. It is also a straight-forward stop too. Just cross at the crosswalk and you are there on the trail. The F runs at off-peak hours.

I can get to the trail easily via bike from my home in Oakland. It's going the other way, from San Francisco, that's difficult, since the trail ends at Yerba Buena.

Yes! It is definitely weird. If you take the F bus or the J, they both let out near Ikea. I think they both come to the same stop, if not, the J gets pretty close. And of course you can take the ferry and come up from the West to the Bay Bridge. Also, the F runs off peak, all day and weekends.
