Major escalator repair at 16th & Mission starting 4/23


Major escalator repair at 16th & Mission starting 4/23

We are removing from service the street-level escalator on the east side of Mission Street at 16th Street/Mission Station on approximately April 23, 2018. This is a major repair that will replace the escalator controller unit with a new solid-state unit along with other repairs.

The unit will be out of service until approximately August 2018. 

BART will perform the same work on nine escalator units at the following stations over the course of two and a half years: Embarcadero, Montgomery, and 16th/24th and Mission stations. The work being done involves major electrical system overhaul of existing escalators that continue to malfunction. This repair work is expected to be complete by 2020 and will result in more reliable escalators and access.
