The East Bay is a subregion of the Bay Area that refers to cities along the northeast shore and inland of San Francisco Bay. The bulk of the East Bay cities are located in Contra Costa and Alameda County. The East Bay is home to approximately 2.5 million people, making it the most populous Bay Area subregion. Major cities in the East Bay include Alameda, Berkeley, Concord, Danville, Dublin, Emeryville, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Moraga, Oakland, Pleasanton, Richmond, San Ramon, and Walnut Creek, among many other cities and unincorporated communities. Oakland is home to the largest sea port in Northern California and is a major industrial center and transportation hub. The Tri-Valley area (made up of Dublin, Pleasanton, Livermore, and surrounding communities) is located inland and is popular because housing costs are generally lower, and many residents commute to San Francisco, Oakland, or Silicon Valley. The Bay Bridge links the East Bay to the city of San Francisco, and BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is a major public transportation vehicle.
