BART outreach for 5am start of service to begin in December

BART outreach for 5am start of service to begin in December

Beginning on February 11, 2019, BART's start of service will shift from 4 am to 5 am systemwide for a massive project that will seismically retrofit the Transbay Tube.

About 2,900 riders enter our system in that first hour of service.

BART conducted extensive outreach this past spring which included surveys, in-station outreach, multilingual media ads, community presentations, and meetings with airport employees, hospitality and service workers, business owners and unions. The rider input helped guide the development of a robust alternative bus service plan for the 4 am hour.

Additional in-station outreach will take place from December 2018 through February 2019 to inform riders about the start of service change and alternative bus service. See outreach schedule below:
