BART Update: BART Schedule Change Information Fact Sheet / Early Bird Express

Changes Impact Weekday and Sunday Riders

Beginning Monday, February 11, 2019, there will be three significant changes to BART train service, which will impact weekday and Sunday riders. The changes will allow BART to speed up the process to seismically upgrade the Transbay Tube and make other vital safety repairs to BART’s aging infrastructure using voter-approved Measure RR funds. Additionally, the schedule adjustment will allow us to expand some service and run longer trains because of the Fleet of the Future roll out. Finally, there will be a new line of service to San Francisco International Airport. There are no changes to Saturday service.
