Colma garage closed in stages for lighting improvements this summer

Update on June 16, 2021: The start date for this project has been set for July 6, 2021.


Update on May 24, 2021: The start date for this project has been delayed until late June/July.


On Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the garage at Colma Station will be closed in stages for approximately nine weeks to allow our contractor to retrofit and upgrade the garage lighting. The garage will be closed starting with floors 2-5. During the first phase of work, the exit to D Street will also be closed. The exit to the Teglia Blvd. will remain open for exiting the garage. Once floors 2-5 are completed, the first floor will be closed. ADA parking will remain available throughout the construction. (See maps). Data shows there will be ample parking for current ridership levels during the closures. Staff will monitor and if additional spaces are needed, the closures will be adjusted accordingly.

This is part of a larger lighting improvement project that will upgrade and improve the lighting in 14 of our station garages throughout the system. This program will replace over 10,500 fixtures and add new lighting controls that will make the lighting in the garages more energy efficient, brighter, and in keeping with our sustainability goals.

Colma is the eighth garage in the project. The rest of the garages will follow until the project is completed in the first quarter of 2022. We will provide updates as necessary during the project.

The 14 station garages that are part of this project are: Hayward, Walnut Creek (BART-owned only), Millbrae, Fruitvale, Daly City, Pleasant Hill, Concord, San Bruno, MacArthur, Colma, Dublin/Pleasanton, Richmond, El Cerrito Del Norte, and South San Francisco.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
