Visiting the Bay Area

Bullseye Resource Center Bay Area is conveniently located in Emeryville, California, and is one of the top glass fusing destinations for all of the Bay Area: San Francisco, Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, Walnut Creek, and surrounding areas.  Whether you're coming to shop for glass supplies or taking a class to expand your kilnforming repertoire, we're looking forward to seeing you! Here are a few helpful hints to get the most out of your visit.


Getting yourself to the Resource Center.

By Air: We recommend flying into Oakland International Airport. Flights here are generally cheaper and you'll already be on the east side of the bay, which is much more convenient. From here, you'll need to rent a car or take public transit.

By Rail: Amtrak's Emeryville Station is about a half-mile walk away.

By Public Transit: The Emery Go-Round shuttle is free and their Hollis Street route runs roughly every 15 minutes on weekdays to and from the MacArthur BART station. Get off at 45th and Hollis.

By Car: Unlike a lot of places in the Bay Area, parking is free in most parts of Emeryville. This is especially true close to the Resource Center.
