Finding the Clinic
The Grand Acupuncture Center is located in the Oakland's Grand Lake neighborhood at 3931 Grand Avenue at the corner of Jean Street. We're convenient to AC Transit buses as well as Hwys 80, 580, 980, 13, and 24.
Parking
There are two "Acupuncture Parking" spots for the clinic in the lot behind the building, plus a third spot that is labelled for dental or acupuncture patients. Please help us keep on good terms with our neighbors -- do not park in any other tenant's spot, even briefly. In case our spots are taken, please allot enough time to find street parking. (We've never had to park more than a block away, and the neighborhood is very safe for walking, even at night.)

There are electronic pay-and-display meters along Grand Avenue, while parking along other nearby streets is free. Please keep an eye on the signs, as all the local side-streets have posted street-sweeping hours, and parking citations are not cheap.

By Bike
If you'll be cycling to the clinic, there are bike anchors out front to which you can chain your bike, or you can take it around to the back side of the building and lock it to the posts at the side of the driveway. We regret that is no room available for bike storage within the clinic, so please bring your own lock.

By BART or Bus
The MacArthur BART station is located on 40th Street between Martin Luther King Boulevard and Telegraph Avenue, about thirty minutes' walk or a ten-minute cab ride from our clinic. We're happy to call a cab for you when your treatment is over.

The intersection of Grand Ave and Jean Street is served by AC Transit bus number 12, which goes to/from the MacArthur and 12th Street BART stations. The bus from MacArthur stops immediately in front of the clinic; the bus from 12th Street stops across the street.

For detailed information on BART or AC Transit routes and schedules, visit the Bay Area Transit Information homepage.
