About Wheels

Your Tri-Valley Connection

The mission of the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority is to provide equal access to a variety of safe, affordable and reliable public transportation choices, increasing the mobility and improving the quality of life of those who live or work in and visit the Tri-Valley area.  These include bus connections to Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) and Central Contra County Transportation Authority (County Connection).

Operated by the Livermore Amador Valley Transit Authority (LAVTA), Wheels plays a vital role in providing transportation and mobility options for those who do not drive, either by choice or necessity. Wheels connects people to work, school, medical appointments, and to recreational opportunities.

The Authority was established in 1985, under a Joint Powers Agreement to provide public transit in the cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, and in unincorporated areas of Alameda County. LAVTA is governed by a seven member Board of Directors. For a historical timeline of Authority, please visit the LAVTA History page.
