Bart Updates

Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan BART update graphic

Beginning February  11th, BART will operate on a new schedule. Weekday service will begin at 5 am. Train times will vary on Sundays as well as weekdays after 9pm. Please regularly plan your trips on or the official BART app and always check before you go.


BART service will start an hour later at 5 a.m. so crews have more time to work on seismic upgrades to the Transbay Tube so it can withstand a major earthquake. Local transit agencies have set up a new “Early Bird Express” bus network, which will operate between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m.  Please visit for bus schedule information, fares and parking options. 


Trains will single-track through the Transbay Tube after 9 p.m. on weeknights while crews make seismic upgrades.  Trains will run every 24 minutes system-wide instead of every 20 minutes.


The  Dublin/Pleasanton (Blue) line, which currently provides direct service between Dublin/Pleasanton and San Francisco on Sundays, will stop running at MacArthur Station.  Riders using the Dublin/Pleasanton (Blue) line will need to transfer at 12th Street/Oakland City Center Station to get to and from San Francisco.


BART will begin to add additional Fleet of the Future trains to the schedule. BART will also start running longer trains during commute hours, which means there will be more seats in the fleet for riders.     

Because there are so many changes to the schedule, BART officials urge that you please “check before you go” by using the official BART app (available in the App Store and Google Play), visitng or calling (510) 465-BART to plan your trip and double-check your train status before you head out.

Thank you for your understanding as BART workers make these necessary repairs so that the system runs reliably for decades to come.
