BART Bicycle Advisory Task Force

BART Bicycle Advisory Task Force Overview

The Bicycle Task Advisory Force (BBATF) is charged with reviewing BART bicycle access progams and projects and working with BART to improve bicycle access to and from stations and onboard trains.

The Bicycle Task Force:

  • Reviews and advises on priorities for BART projects that affect bicyclists using the BART system.
  • Evaluates and advises on the impact of BART plans, policies, procedures, programs, maintenance activities, and facilities on bicyclists who use BART and recommend improvements to bicyclists’ ability to access and utilize BART stations and trains.
  • Provides a public forum for and encourage public participation in the discussion and resolution of all BART-related bicycle safety, security, and access issues.
  • Considers and supports the access needs of all bicyclists who use BART, including commuting, transportation, recreational, racing, and utilitarian bicyclists.
  • Collaborates with other citizen’s advisory committees as appropriate, e.g., the BART Accessibility Task Force (BATF), in order to consider the needs and safety concerns of other passengers such as wheelchair users and those with mobility impairments who may interact with cyclists or use facilities with bicyclists on BART trains and around BART stations.

On August 2, 2021: the Bicycle Task Force revised and adopted its bylaws.
