Safe Routes to BART

BART is helping partner agencies implement active transportation capital projects off BART property to support BART's Access Policy, expand station access choices and make it safer and easier for all riders to use the system.

Goals:  

  • Mode Shift: Expand opportunities to access BART stations with potential to shift people from driving and parking to walking and biking.
  • Project Readiness: Deliver near-term, enduring active access improvements to real property that demonstrate a clear nexus to a BART station.
  • Partnership: Collaborate with local partners to create more sustainable communities.
  • Equitable: Provide equitable access for disadvantaged communities. 
  • Customer Experience: Enhance personal safety and security; add to passenger comfort and sense of place.
  • Complete communities: Promote Transit-Oriented Development (TOD).
  • Leverage: Leverage other funding sources to deliver improvements.
