DUBLIN -- Free bus service to and from the Dublin's St Patrick's Day festival and the Dublin/Pleasanton BART station will be offered both Saturday and Sunday.
The festival at the Dublin Civic Center is held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Festival goers arriving at the BART station should look for signs directing them to the Wheels route 10 bus. Riders should ask the driver for a return trip coupon.
Buses will depart on Saturday every 20 minutes between 9:15 a.m. and 6 p.m. Earlier in the day, buses will depart at 40-minute intervals from 5:41 and 9 a.m.
On Sunday, buses will depart every 40 minutes from 6:21 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The city especially encourages out-of-town visitors to take the free bus. Dublin is underwriting the free rides.
