Fiscal Year 2022 (July 1, 2021 - June 30, 2022) Budget 

FY22 Preliminary Budget Memo

BART's operating budget funds the annual operation and maintenance of the train system. The operating budget sources include passenger and parking revenue, taxes, and financial assistance from local, state and federal sources. The capital budget funds the construction, expansion, renovation, or replacement of physical assets (new train cars, station improvements, etc.) Capital funding consists of federal/state/local grants, voter approved bonds and measures specifically for capital improvements, and allocations from the operating budget.

The Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) Preliminary Budget Memo provides a starting point for FY22 budget discussions with the BART Board, riders, and the public. The Memo outlines BART’s current ridership and budget outlook, as well as new initiatives to help rebuild ridership, improve the rider experience, and support regional recovery. 

The BART Board of Directors will discuss and take action on the budget at upcoming board meetings, which are tentatively scheduled as follows:

  1. April 22, 2021: FY22 Preliminary Budget Overview (for information)
  2. May 13, 2021: FY22 Budget Sources, Uses, Service Plan, and Capital Budget (for information)
