Elevators out at Embarcadero to 4/7/2017 Update

On Monday, 3/27, we removed from service both elevators (street-level and platform-level) at Embarcadero Station, and expected to return them to service this week.

Because the damage to the elevators was greater than we expected, we will need to keep the elevators out of service for an additional week. We want to make sure all repairs are done to restore the elevators completely to a safe operating condition.

We will be upgrading the splashguards and flooring in the elevators to prevent liquid from flowing under the floor and to make cleaning the elevators easier. In addition will repair and replace the subflooring on the elevators.

If you need to use an elevator for access you will have to go to an adjacent station such as Montgomery Street. Or, you may contact a Station Agent to arrange for a lift van to take you to a nearby station with a working elevator.

To check if an elevator is in service before arriving at a station, please call 510-834-LIFT (510-834-5438) or 888-2-ELEVAT (888-235-3828), or sign up for elevator status alerts at www.bart.gov/elevators.

We apologize for the great inconvenience this will cause you and appreciate your patience while we perform this important maintenance work.
