Thank you voters! Because nearly 70% of you voted 'yes' on Measure RR, we have funding to begin our transition to a modern commuter rail system. We're rebuilding and reinvesting, with projects spanning every part of the region from the rolling hills of North Concord, to the tunnels of downtown San Francisco. We’re taking on today’s challenges, and moving forward together.
We're doing everything we can to accomodate the 430,000 daily passengers we serve, and capacity improvements are arriving as we speak. New train cars are undergoing testing for service in 2017, and funding has been identified for projects designed to keep BART safe, reliable, and prepared for future ridership growth.
On November 8, 2016, voters approved $3.5 billion in bonds dedicated to system reinvestment. This is one part of a larger menu of projects that are in-progress, or soon to be! Thanks to your vote, our plan has been set into motion. The Board of Directors will appoint members to the Measure RR independent oversight committee in April 2017; download the January 2017 Board Workshop presentation here. Check out what projects we're working on to make your BART experience better.
