Coliseum Station Modernization

As part of our Station Modernization effort, BART completed its modernization project at Coliseum Station in June 2016 in anticipation of future land use development and airport growth.  The goal of the project was to develop and prioritize potential station improvements to upgrade and modernize the station’s function, safety and security, capacity, sustainability, appearance, and improve the customer experience.  BART partnered with the City and AC Transit to develop a station area vision that will inform the modernization work.

The Plan positioned BART to partner and seek funding for implementation.
