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.
The following reports describe the Perks programs in detail:
- Perks Phase II final report (December 2018-June 2019)
- Perks Phase I final report (September 2016-April2017)
The BART Perks program is now concluded and the Perks feature on the BART mobile application is no longer active.
