Situated between Oakland to the south and Berkeley to the north, Emeryville, CA sits at the intersections between Interstates 80 and 580 on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay. Emeryville is home to a number of technology, software and biotech firms, which have significantly improved the standard of living.
Interestingly, though Emeryville houses only about 10,000 residents, its working population increases dramatically on weekdays, powered by such companies as Pixar Animation Studios, Novartis, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Jamba Juice and Clif Bar. Its close proximity to Silicon Valley, San Francisco and Berkeley has driven the success of Emeryville as a city.
Despite bordering Oakland and in the middle of one of the most populous metropolitan areas of the country, somehow Emeryville holds on to its own identity. It’s a small town with a mix of San Francisco, Oakland and a dash of Berkeley. At the same time, it has a lot of “big city” amenities, such as IKEA, Starbucks, and a few exceptional restaurants that seem like they’d be more at home in San Francisco. Getting around is easy, especially with the free “Emery-Go-Round” shuttle bus service.
On the other hand, wherever the Emery-Go-Round doesn’t go, you’ll need a reliable vehicle to get around. A reliable auto repair shop is just as important to help you keep that vehicle on the road and running well. Just a few minutes north of Emeryville, CA, Argonaut Garage offers top-quality maintenance and auto repairs. Trust Argonaut Garage in Berkeley for all your auto repair needs.
