PLANNING FOR THE NEXT 40 YEARS
Future BART

BART is 40 years old and needs system-wide upgrades to continue to provide high quality service to its riders. In addition, the Bay Area will grow over the next 40 years, and BART will need to grow with it to meet demand. Future BART is an effort to map out the future of BART, and how best to improve the existing system while growing at the same time.

HOME IN HAYWARD
Hayward Maintenance Complex Project

To accommodate the much larger (a hoped for goal of 1,081 train cars) and more technologically advanced Fleet of the Future, BART will need to build a state of the art maintenance and storage facility. The proposed Hayward Maintenance Complex Project would be just that. By improving underdeveloped BART property on-site, and acquiring adjacent commercial property, the new complex will be large enough to service up to 250 vehicles.
