Although Alameda is nicknamed “City Island” (or simply “The Island”), it actually only occupies two islands and a small section of Oakland. Today the city consists of three main sections. The former naval aviation station occupies the western part of the islands of Alameda. The Southshore area runs along the southern island of the Alameda. Bay Farm Island continues to the southeast towards San Leandro. Recent Alameda property management studies predict a strong rental market will continue in these neighborhoods.
The area of the former Naval Air station is now known as the “Alameda Point.” Alameda Point and South Shore are built on landfill dredged from the bay. Car access to the island of Alameda is through three bridges from the City of Oakland. The bridges are Park Street, Fruitvale Avenue and High Street Bridges. In addition you can use the frequently congested Posey and Webster street tunnels leading to Chinatown in Oakland.

Connections from Alameda to Farm Island are provided through the Bay Farm Island Bridge and Bay Farm Island. The Bay Farm Island bridge is the only pedestrian and bicycle bridge in the United States of America. The California 61 road passes through the city’s streets from Posey and Webster Street access, across the bridge at Bay Farm Farm and south to Oakland International Airport.
Public transport includes AC Transit buses (including express buses to San Francisco) and two ferry services. You can choose between the Oakland Ferry and the Harbor Bay line. Both ferry services are managed by the Water Transport Authority. AC Transit buses run three times in the morning and afternoon. Bus lines conveniently run near the historic Lincoln High School. The nearest BART stations are Merritt Lake and 12th Street, near the exit to Posey-Tube and Fruitvale, near the Fruitvale Bridge.
