BART to operate longer trains for 35th annual San Francisco Pride Parade

Longer trains will also run for weekend A's/Giants series at Oakland Coliseum.

BART will provide longer trains to accommodate the crowds attending the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Parade and Celebration in San Francisco this Sunday, June 26. In addition to the longer trains, BART will provide event trains before and after the celebration.

Trains will operate on a regular Sunday schedule at 20 minute intervals on three lines: Richmond to Fremont, Pittsburg/Bay Point to Millbrae and Dublin/Pleasanton to Daly City. The parade begins at 10:30 a.m. at Market and Davis Streets. The celebration is scheduled to end at 7 p.m.

One of the world's largest Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender events, SF Pride attracts in excess of one million people. Beat the traffic, take BART to the celebration and parade. For more info, visit sfpride.org.

Extra service for "Battle of the Bay" baseball series
BART will provide longer trains and additional event trains during the "Battle of the Bay" series as the Giants play the A's at the Coliseum Friday night and Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Ticket tables will ease the demand at machines
BART personnel will be selling BART tickets at tables at selected stations to help ease the demand at tickets machines. A ticket table will be open at Civic Center Station Sunday from 1 to 7 p.m. to assist riders headed to the Pride Celebration. Ticket tables will also be open at Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont stations from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday to assist both Pride parade fans and baseball fans. These tables will also sell tickets to the A's/Giants game.

BART officials suggest riders buy round trip tickets to avoid lines before the trip home.
