Potential service disruption on Friday, January 16
We at BART want to ensure that our customers are aware that there is a potential for a major service disruption on Friday morning at Montgomery Street Station due to a protest organizers say will begin at 7 a.m. We suggest that our customers factor this potential service disruption into their travel plans, especially if those plans include travel through downtown San Francisco stations.
BART fully supports the right to peacefully protest, which is why it has an Expressive Activities Permit process allowing for the expression of First Amendment rights outside the fare gates of our stations. However, if protesters choose potentially dangerous actions that cause major service disruptions, BART Police are prepared to enforce the law and ensure public safety.
We encourage our customers to sign up for email or text alerts at http://www.bart.gov/news/alerts for information about service disruptions in the event they occur.
