Were You Injured Using Public Or Mass Transportation?

Residents of San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland and other communities throughout Northern California rely heavily on mass transit carriers or "common carriers" every day to get to work, school and other important appointments.

The Bay Area's Different Mass Transit Operations

There are many different common carriers utilized throughout the East Bay area and include:

  • BART trains and stations
  • AMTRAK trains and stations
  • AC transit buses
  • San Francisco Bay Ferry
  • Alameda/Oakland Ferry
  • Sausalito Golden Gate Ferry
  • Taxi services
  • Cable cars

The Responsibility Of Common Carriers

These common carriers are required to make their services safe for riders and operate with a high level of care under the law.

If they don't, they could be liable under the law for injuries that occur to passengers using their services. They could also be responsible for injuries that occur from assault or other criminal activity that occur on their premises.
