BART to run longer trains, but will not extend hours for LovEvolution

BART will run longer trains but will not extend hours for this weekend's LovEvolution, a dance music festival on the grounds of the Oracle Arena and O.co Coliseum that's expected to draw up to 75,000 people on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The event runs all day and has an evening afterparty scheduled to go until 2 a.m.; however, BART will not be extending the hours of service. Riders planning to take BART should be aware of the last-train schedule, or make alternative transportation plans if they intend to stay later.

Going northbound from Coliseum/Oakland Airport Station on Saturday nights/Sunday morning, the last scheduled Daly City train departs at 12:23 a.m. and the last scheduled Richmond train departs at 12:25 a.m. Going southbound, the last scheduled Dublin/Pleasanton train leaves at 12:35 a.m. and the last scheduled Fremont train leaves at 1:03 a.m.   Check BART schedules and real-time departure information at www.bart.gov or on your mobile device at http://m.bart.gov. Schedule information for alternative transportation is available at www.511.org.

BART service resumes on a regular Sunday schedule at around 8 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 25. BART uses the hours when trains are not running to perform required maintenance; for more detail on why BART doesn't run 24 hours, go to: http://www.bart.gov/guide/latenight.aspx

BART also reminds riders to buy a round-trip ticket in advance to avoid lines, or avoid ticket machines altogether by using a Clipper card; more info at www.clippercard.com.

It's a busy weekend in the Bay Area and BART will be providing longer trains on Sunday to accommodate crowds expected for other events as well. BART will run longer trains Sunday for the Folsom Street Fair and SF Opera at AT&T Park, both in San Francisco, and for the Oakland Raiders game in Oakland.
