All Hacienda employees and residents may ride the WHEELS system for free. Passes providing access to the WHEELS system are available from Hacienda. As of June 7, 2005 new passes will be required for Hacienda employees and residents to board WHEELS buses. Beginning May 23, Hacienda will be distributing new passes to current pass holders.

WHEELS Service Area
WHEELS buses connect the Tri-Valley area to locations throughout Hacienda. WHEELS buses also meet each incoming ACE and BART train during the peak commute hours to shuttle Hacienda employees to their businesses and residents to the respective stations. During off-peak commute hours, WHEELS DART service shuttles passengers to and from the BART station as well as other destinations in the WHEELS service area. WHEELS I-680 express bus service provides a direct link for people commuting between Hacienda and Pleasant Hill/Walnut Creek.  Wheels schedules can be viewed online at: www.wheelsbus.com/schedules/index.html.
