The popular and free Walnut Creek Trolley operates between downtown Walnut Creek and the Walnut Creek BART station. The route shuttles visitors between the BART station and Broadway Plaza, stopping every other block at locations along Locust Street, Broadway Plaza, and Main Street. The County Connection also runs buses downtown and outlying areas of Walnut Creek and neighboring communities.
The multi-use, whole-access Iron Horse Trail runs through Walnut Creek north / south, following the Southern Pacific Railroad right-of-way established in 1891 and abandoned in 1977. The Contra Costa Canal Trail runs through Walnut Creek east / west, meandering along the Contra Costa Canal. These paved trails, in addition to the many Walnut Creek street bike lanes, provide enjoyable walking and riding experiences, as well as transportation opportunities.
