Powell St. Modernization Plan

BART has completed the Powell St. Modernization Plan, which will invest resources into the existing core stations and surrounding areas to support transit ridership and enhance the quality of life around the stations. The goal of the project is to develop and prioritize potential station improvements to upgrade and modernize the station’s function, safety and security, capacity, sustainability, appearance, and improve the customer experience.

The Plan will position BART to partner and seek funding for implementation.

Project Goals

As part of our Station Modernization effort, BART has developed a comprehensive vision for the Powell Station to upgrade and modernize the station. The Vision is to modernize the station so that it demonstrates BART’s commitment to advancing transit ridership, improving the transit experience, refinforcing Powell St. as a gateway station, enhancing the quality of life around the stations and meeting BART’s needs for the future. The station modernization revolves around the themes of:

Vibrancy – Reflect the energy of the surrounding community and enhance the station’s existing strengths

Connectivity – Strengthen multi-modal and universal access to the station and promote a safe and comfortable customer experience

Sustainability – Incorporate sustainable materials and technologies into the station to increase the life-cycle value of the station’s infrastructure and to conserve natural resources and protect the public investment

The improvements focus on increasing safety, capacity, sustainability, appearance, and enhancing the customer experience. In developing potential improvements for the station, BART has undertaken a planning process to:

  • Identify existing station deficiencies
  • Consider impacts of development and growth on station ridership
  • Understand future access, capacity and operational issues 
  • Consider art & place-making improvements
  • Coordinate conversation with stakeholders
  • Engage the community to help identify and prioritize improvements
