Buses operate out of four operating divisions: Emeryville, East Oakland (Seminary), Hayward, and Richmond. The Operations Control Center is in Emeryville.[2] The Richmond operating division closed in 2011,[5] but opened again in early 2017 due to a revived economy.[6] The District is the public successor to the privately owned Key System.

In 2021, the system had a ridership of 24,311,300, or about 131,100 per weekday as of the third quarter of 2022.
