The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) is the steward of a large-scale public investment, which includes important real property assets essential to BART’s operation. These assets also contribute to the ongoing financial viability of the transit system. Recent system extensions and federal, state and regional policy direction to concentrate growth around transit further enhances the value of these assets. By promoting high quality, more intensive development on and near BART-owned properties, the District can increase ridership, support long-term system capacity and generate new revenues for transit. Also, such development creates attractive investment opportunities for the private sector and facilitates local economic development goals.
TRANSIT-ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT POLICY:
On June 9 2016, the BART Board of Directors adopted a new Transit-Oriented Development Policy (93 Kb .pdf). This replaced the original 2005 policy with updates to reflect major changes throughout the Bay Area:
- The adoption of Plan Bay Area as a regional framework for transportation and land use growth;
- The loss of local Redevelopment resources;
- The Bay Area's growing housing affordability crisis.
BART is currently engaged in 19 transit-oriented development projects at its stations, representing over $3.2 billion in private investment.
