Temporary Entrance Closure at Powell Street Station for Escalator Installation UPDATE

BART has closed the Market Street entrance at the corner of Market and 4th and Ellis on 9/11 for escalator work.  On a future weekend, they will  hoist a new escalator into the space. The entrance will remain closed for approximately six months while the escalator is installed and tested. While it is closed, the entrance directly across Market Street (south side) has been opened and will remain open until the escalator work is finished (see map below).

An elevator is available on the north side of Market Street at the corner of 4th and Market.

To check escalator status, go to www.bart.gov/escalators.

(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. If you arrive at any station and find that the elevator(s) are out of service, you may contact a Station Agent to arrange for a lift van to take you to a nearby station with a working elevator.)

Thank you for your patience as we work to accomplish this important escalator replacement project. As a reminder, per state code, street-level escalators can only be installed at locations where a canopy has been constructed. For the remainder of 2020, all other escalator replacement installations will be performed on platform escalators inside downtown stations.
