Major changes in AC transit bus service originally scheduled for June 3 have been postponed until June 24, according to district officials. 

The changes directly affecting Oakland and Berkeley will be the Launch of the new 1 and 1R International Rapid bus lines from Bay Fair BART to UC Berkeley, which will cause changes to AC Transit lines 5, 19, 40/40L, 43, 52/52L, and 82/82L. A district spokesperson said that the changes will involve a combination of elimination and consolidation of some of those lines, as well as schedule changes. 

Maps of the new lines and schedules will be available to the public today (Friday) on AC Transit’s website, www.actransit.org, as well as on the buses themselves by June 10.
