BART expands service for Sunday's Raiders game

BART will run longer trains on Sunday, October 19, to accommodate the thousands of Raider fans attending the Oakland Raiders versus the New York Jets game at the Oakland Coliseum stadium, which begins at 1:15 p.m. As an added service, after the Raiders game BART will add trains for the thousands of fans leaving the Coliseum.

BART personnel will be selling flash passes and round-trip BART tickets from tables at three stations to help ease demand at ticket machines.  On Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., BART will have two ticket tables at the Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont Stations and one table at El Cerrito Del Norte.  BART staff will sell flash passes to the Coliseum/Oakland Airport Station for football fans and regular round-trip blue BART tickets for passengers headed to the San Francisco stations.

BART officials suggest riders buy round-trip tickets to avoid lines before the ride home.
