Central Commons offers quick access to BART, Altamont Commuter Express (ACE), AC Transit, Interstate 880, and Interstate 680.

Phase II of Central Commons includes 19 homes to be sold to moderate income households earning between 80% and 120% of the area median income. The City is considering a Live/Work Preference Policy. It is likely that preference will be given to applicants who currently live and/or work in Fremont.
