Shop Info TRANSPORTS is a Running and Swimming specialty store which has been serving the community of the East Bay since 1982.

We have the largest selection of current-model running footwear in the Bay Area, as well as an extensive array of running apparel, socks, and accessories. We do video treadmill motion analysis, and have the knowledge and experience to help match anyone with the gear most appropriate for them.

We carry performance swimwear and Tri-shorts year-round, and stock a large assortment of goggles, caps, fins. For Triathletes, we carry those hard-to-find items like race number belts, easy laces, Body Glide, and wetsuits from Quintana Roo.

Directions: We are located on College ave near Claremont Ave, in the Rockridge area of Oakland. We are 3 blocks north of the Rockridge Bart station, near Hwy 24.

Map location is based off of a geocode of the addressed entered using Google's Google Maps API. If your address does not geocode properly, you can either update the address (we will attempt to re-geocode after any updates to your entry) or you can use Google's geocoding tool found here: http://gmaps-samples.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/geocoder/singlegeocode.html to obtain a lat/long for your location and enter that. To use the utility, type in an address that is close to your location and then drag-and-drop the marker to obtain the desired lat/long. If you choose to enter a lat/long, you must check the box on the edit page that says, "override geocode with entered lat/long."
