BART Board of Directors to hold rare evening meeting on 4/27
For the first time in about two years the BART Board of Directors will hold one of its regular meetings at night. On Thursday, 4/27, the meeting will begin at 5pm instead of the typical 9am start time. The location for the meeting will be the BART Board Room, which is located in the Kaiser Center 20th Street Mall, Third Floor, 344 20th St, Oakland.
BART Board President Rebecca Saltzman is a leading proponent of the later start time. “We’ve found that most people can’t come to a 9am meeting on a Thursday. By having a later start time we will give more people an opportunity to engage with the Board,” said Saltzman.
The BART Board has not held any of its regular meetings at night since 2015.
The plan is to hold three evening meetings this year. The dates for the other two night meetings have not yet been decided.
