Montgomery Street Station elevator temporarily out of service for improvement work


Montgomery Street Station elevator temporarily out of service for improvement work

On Wednesday, September 9, 2009, BART will close the street elevator at Montgomery Street Station in order to demolish and replace the structure that houses the elevator entrance on the street level. Unfortunately, we must shut down the elevator for approximately three and one-half months (until December 2009) during this construction.

If you require an elevator, you must plan ahead and make alternative travel plans during this period. If you rely on the elevators to enter and exit at Montgomery Street Station you should exit at our Embarcadero or Powell Street stations. For suggestions on transit alternatives or general information on the BART/Muni Elevator Enclosure Replacement Project, go online to www.bart.gov or www.sfmta.com; or call BART Transit Information at (415) 989-BART, (925) 676-BART, or (510) 465-BART. For Muni information call (415) 701-2311; or if you’re within the 415 area code, call 311.

This elevator closure is part of a major project to reconstruct the street elevator enclosures on the elevators of the BART/Muni Metro Stations at Civic Center, Embarcadero, Montgomery, and Powell. We are conducting this necessary replacement work to update the elevator enclosures to current standards, extend the life of the equipment and improve the reliability of the elevator doors. We apologize for any inconvenience the temporary closure may cause.
