BART expands service for "Sunday Streets," A's
Ditch your car this Sunday, September 14, and take BART to the second “Sunday Streets” San Francisco event.
From 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the City of San Francisco will once again open up a car-free zone that connects the Bayview to Chinatown via the Embarcadero. BART will operate longer trains for Sunday Street revelers and for A’s fans heading to the Coliseum.
"When the City launched the very first Sunday Streets event on August 31, nearly 155,000 people rode BART, making it the second highest Sunday ridership of the summer,” BART Board Member Lynette Sweet said. “BART is a convenient way to come to Sunday Streets and play as the route is easily accessible by three downtown San Francisco BART stations."
The public is invited to travel the 4.5 mile route and explore free activities along the way.
"Sunday Streets is San Francisco’s way of celebrating health, wellness and fun while linking two vibrant communities," BART Board Member James Fang said. "What better way to end the summer in the City than joining the biggest car-free event in the Bay Area? And what greener way for our neighbors from the East Bay and the peninsula to get there than on BART?"
Sweet represents the Bayview and BART’s District 7 and Fang represents BART’s District 8, which includes Chinatown.
HOW TO GET THERE
The Sunday Streets route is accessible from the Embarcadero, Montgomery and Powell Street Stations. From 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Muni will offer free rides on T and F-lines.
