BART runs special service Thanksgiving week

BART will operate longer trains to help passengers with their travels on the day before Thanksgiving — Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013, which is traditionally the busiest travel day of the year. There will also be longer trains on Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013 — the day when most airport travelers return home.

On Wednesday, Nov. 27, and Sunday, Dec. 1, BART will run longer trains on the Pittsburg/Bay Point (yellow) line to accommodate air travelers. The Pittsburg/Bay Point line serves the San Francisco International Airport. 

On Thanksgiving Day itself, Thursday, Nov. 28, BART will run on a Sunday schedule, with service beginning at approximately 8 am.

Additionally, BART will significantly increase the number of available seats by making trains as long as possible on the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, Nov. 29, which has become one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Full-length trains will operate from 6 am to close of service for bargain hunters looking for extra room to carry their bags of gifts onboard.
