Balboa Park Station Modernization Plan

BART is currently advancing concept design as part of the Station Modernization Program, 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.

As part of our Station Modernization effort. BART is currently developing design and construction cost estimates for Balboa Park Station. 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.  BART is also partnering with the City to identify plaza improvements to support the Upper Yard Affordable Housing Project.

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