All the Places You Can Visit from Oakland for Less Than $20

As Oakland is one of the biggest and most expensive cities in the Bay Area, it’s not surprising that most of the cheap bus and train tickets from there are for places around North California. There are just seven destinations you can reach from Oakland for under $20 – six in Cali and one in Nevada.

However, Oakland is in really close proximity to San Francisco. That means that you can easily hop on the BART system and take advantage of the additional destinations that you can travel to from San Fran.

While it is not on this list because the cheapest average fare to get there is over $20, Los Angeles is a destination for which you can score $1 bus tickets from Oakland if you book in advance.

What is Cheapest Average price?

The cheapest average price is the average amount of all of the cheapest bus or train prices available on Wanderu for a certain route over a 30-day period.

Bus and train carriers utilize what is known as dynamic pricing to determine ticket prices. That means that when a specific trip goes on sale (usually within four to six weeks prior to the trip date), tickets for that particular bus or train start at a certain low price and then get more expensive the more tickets are sold for that trip.

The cheapest average price may vary according to availability and carrier changes.
