BART’s Brightening Crew: Blasting Away the Grime


BART’s Brightening Crew: Blasting Away the Grime

 

You may have seen them before in downtown Oakland or San Francisco, covered head-to-toe in protective gear and wielding a heated high-pressure washer wand. They’re BART’s brightening crew, and they’re on a deep cleaning mission to blast away the dirt (and blood, and vomit, and human waste) mucking up our stairwells.

In this video, watch them working at Civic Center Station and get a feel for how they operate and what drives them to take pride in doing one of BART’s dirtiest jobs.
