We know you depend on BART and we strive to give you the best service updates possible.

When are service advisories issued?

BART issues a Service Advisory when multiple trains are off schedule by 10 minutes or more. 

As a delay initially unfolds, we'll issue an advisory as soon as possible given other safety, security and operational priorities within the BART Operations Control Center.

Our goal is to issue a BART Elevator Advisory when platform-level elevators or street-level elevators at BART Stations go in and out of service.

BART offers all service advisories via email and text and also on the official BART app, including customized in-app notifications for delay advisories and elevator outages.
