We know you depend on BART and we strive to give you the best service updates possible.
When are service advisories issued?
During reduced service due to COVID-19 low ridership, the Operations Control Center will issue a BART Service Advisory when any train is off schedule by 10 minutes. Previously, we would issue a BART Service Advisory when multiple trains are off schedule by 10 minutes or more. With trains running less frequently we enhanced the policy of issuing advisories for increased transparency to assist in trip planning.
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.
