BART will run longer trains to accommodate the crowds expected to participate in San Francisco’s LGBT Pride Celebration Saturday and Sunday, June 28 and 29.
In addition, BART will have special “event” trains on standby to help clear crowded platforms during peak travel times.
There will be increased BART staff strategically placed throughout the system to assist customers, provide crowd control, and ensure system-wide safety. BART Police, technicians, and other personnel will be on hand to respond to problems.
Passengers are encouraged to use BART’s mobile website (http://m.bart.gov
