Bay Area residents have been thinking about the environment since before the first passenger stepped aboard a BART train in 1972 and BART riders are still helping keep emissions down and keep our sky blue today. When you choose BART, you’re riding the lightest subway cars in the world, so they use less energy. You’re riding on trains that are 100% electric and get two-thirds of that power from clean hydro and renewable energy sources. When BART trains brake, 80% of braking energy is used to power other trains. Read more about BART's environmental credentials.
