What is BART Perks?                                                                          

The BART Perks Beta pilot program tested a new platform that rewards riders for their BART travel based on when they commute.  The program aimed to encourage BART travel at less crowded times and places, including before and after rush hour and on evenings and weekends.  Perks was funded primarily through a $500,000 grant from the Federal Transit Administration, and built on the lessons learned from a previous pilot conducted in 2016.  BART Perks ended on June 30th, 2019.

What's next? 

BART has partnered with academic researchers to evaluate the effectiveness of the Perks program in reducing peak period crowding.  Once the evaluation is complete, results will be shared on this web site.
