BART releases draft FY 06 ten-year plan

Will hear public comment at January 2006 Board Meeting

BART has released the District's Draft Fiscal Year 2006 Short Range Transit Plan and Capital Improvement Program (SRTP/CIP) for public review. The agency will hear public comment on the document at the January 12, 2006 Board meeting, which begins at 9:00 a.m. in the BART Board of Directors room at 344 20th Street, 3rd floor, Oakland, California, 94612.

The Federal Transit Administration and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission require BART to produce the plan, which is a management and financial planning tool that gives an analysis of BART's operating and capital funding needs, priorities and funding strategies through Fiscal Year 2015. The document also provides a long-term perspective for the current year operating and capital programs and lays out the District's approach to capital investment and funding strategies.

Highlights of Draft SRTP/CIP include:

    • An Overview of the BART Organization, Facilities & Fare Structure
    • Information on Current & Future Rail Ridership, Service & Operating Performance
    • Ten-Year Operating And Capital Financial Forecasts § Discussion of expansive "Next Generation" Renovation Program
    • Update on Earthquake Safety Program
    • Station-by-station updates of planning, development, access, reinvestment and capacity projects
