BART will be open while the Bay Bridge is closed over Labor Day Weekend.
BART will run trains on a 24 hour basis beginning the night of Wednesday, August 28th until the night of Monday, September 2nd.
BART resumes normal service at about 4 am on Tuesday, September 3rd.
The overnight trains will operate hourly on a two route modified “X” service serving 14 stations, with trains between Concord and San Francisco International Airport forming one line of the X and trains between El Cerrito del Norte and Dublin/Pleasanton forming the other line.
All trains will meet at MacArthur Station, where passengers may transfer to reach any of the 14 stations that will be open around the clock.
For a map of the stations that will be open and the overnight train schedule, visit www.bart.gov Customers using the overnight service should select a station that will be open when planning their trip and for parking. Trains will not run overnight Monday into Tuesday so BART may carry out required maintenance work and inspections.
During regular service hours, BART will increase its passenger capacity by running longer trains all day and will adjust train service to match needs for weekend events, including A’s home games, Cal Bears football and America’s Cup finals.
Ridership is expected to increase significantly compared to other holiday weekends due to the bridge closure. For example, during the 2009 Labor Day weekend five day Bay Bridge closure, BART carried an extra 230,000 riders compared to the same five day period in 2008, a 30% increase.
During Labor Day Monday, BART will operate on a Saturday schedule. BART parking is available during the Bay Bridge closure however all BART parking regulations will be enforced. The daily parking fee will apply Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the bridge closure and drivers who don’t have monthly or long term permits are reminded to park in the “fee” parking areas, not the “reserved” or “permit” areas.
Parking will be free on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. For more information about parking at BART stations, visit www.bart.gov/parking
