BART connects you to people you love, places you enjoy, and to the countless opportunities the Bay Area has to offer. We have a plan to rebuild and reinvest in our aging system, but we can’t do it alone—and we can’t do it if anyone gets left behind. We’ve come a long way in our 44-year history, and we’re ready to take on today’s challenges and move forward together.
What was cutting-edge in the late ’60s no longer serves the needs of a modern Bay Area. We’ve gone from 170,000 passengers per week in 1972 to 430,000 passengers per day in 2016. Our train cars are antiquated, the control system is prone to delays, and it’s no secret we’re stretched beyond capacity. So where do we go from here?
We need your voice, and we’re asking BART riders and Bay Area residents to share this site and learn about our plan as we work together to build a better BART, and to fix what needs fixing. Our plan has room for everyone, so tell us where you see yourself, your family, and your friends within this vision for the future.
