BART: Expect weekend Delays Between Lafayette, Concord for Track Maintenance

November 16, 2012 8:00 am · 6 comments

In November and December BART will be doing maintenance work on the track sections between Lafayette and Concord stations.

The work will be done on Saturdays and Sundays and will result in 10 to 15 minute delays on the line. This work is necessary to maintain service reliability.

For more information, please visit BART’s real-time departures page or call 511. BART also publishes service advisories when construction related or other delays occur.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I hate single-tracking. BART IS NEVER EVER DONE WITH TRACK MAINTENANCE; do it after the system is closed. BART already has enough delays without single-tracking.

Clean BART Trains? Take a look at the air filters by the door underneath the seats and you’ll wonder what the hell you’re inhaling all the home. There was so much crap and fur coming out of that air vent, it was extremely gross. Didn’t have a cell to take a picture of it.

Clean and Bart do not belong in the same sentence.

Bart is public transportation.

A great many of the public who ride Bart are real nice decent people.

Then there are the scum that trash the trains for everyone else.

People always say do maintenance when BART is closed. Bart finishes service around 130-145am depending. Then it starts getting trains in position around 315am. Thats just over an hour that BART is truly not running trains. The maintenance is necessary to keep it safe. Believe me the Employees dislike it more then the public. It’s just a necessary evil to stay safe. As far as the clean trains go the board has cut way back on the amount of employees they have cleaning trains, stations and parking lots it’s really starting to show. We have a lot of great passengers and some that trash the trains so quickly. We have more passengers then ever and less employees to keep up. We try hard to keep it clean and safe.

Let’s hope some fresh Board members were elected and they will make keeping the stations and trains cleaner a priority. I agree with you there are a certain bunch of regular losers that constantly trash the trains but why doesn’t BART have video on these people and go after them. If BART had decent, I’m sure this would stop.

Well, I wonder why does BART even close then if there isn’t enough time to do maintence. It seems every time they do track work, then we have track problems the entire following week. They let all the good main line workers go because they wouldn’t pay them. Experienced men replaced with meanderthals reading a binder.
