Civic Center Escalator at 8th & Market (Hotel Whitcomb) Update: Now reopened

Update: Restored to service

The street-level escalator at Civic Center Station 8th & Market St. entrance was closed today. During routine maintenance, the workers discovered additional mechanical issues that needed to be addressed for safety reasons. We will make the repairs as quickly as possible and hope to restore the escalator to service by approximately April 15.

There is a barricade around the escalator for your safety, but the stairs at this entrance are still open for use.

Go to www.bart.gov/escalators for the status of escalators at your station. To check if an elevator is in service before arriving at a station, please call 510-834-LIFT (510-834-5438) or 888-2-ELEVAT (888-235-3828), or sign up for elevator status alerts at www.bart.gov/elevators. If you arrive at any station and find that the elevator(s) are out of service, you may contact a Station Agent to arrange for a lift van to take you to a nearby station with a working elevator.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
