Major escalator repair at 24th & Mission starting 1/2/2019

Escalator location northeast of 24th street

We are removing from service the street-level escalator at the east side of Mission Street at 24th on approximately Wednesday, January 2, 2019. You may see some activity from the contractor as they prepare for the closure. 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 April 2019. 

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.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
