Fewer ticket vending machines temporarily at MacArthur Station


Fewer ticket vending machines temporarily at MacArthur Station

In late May only two ticket vending machines will be available at MacArthur Station as asbestos removal work will force the closure of a portion of the station. 

Because the limited availability of ticket vending machines at MacArthur may result in long lines, BART suggests customers use Clipper cards, buy high value tickets or use the ticket vending machines at other stations during this temporary closure. 

During the work, there will be on-site monitoring of the air quality in the work areas and each section will be under containment protocols while the work is going on and there will be a BART safety monitor present.

The work should be completed in June. The area between the escalators and stairs will be blocked. The stairs and escalators will continue to be available for use. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Some of the work areas may block your normal path of travel but there will always be an alternate path available. Please plan to allow some additional time to reach your train and follow the signs and directions of the work crews.
