BART Seeks Passenger Input On Late Night, Weekend Service Changes

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Bay Area Rapid Transit is looking for input on its modified late-night service proposal by conducting a passenger survey on after-hours and weekend use.

Earlier this year, based on public comment, the BART Board of Directors opted to defer action to extend train service by an hour on Friday nights, and start Saturday morning service later.

"We want to hear from our passengers who might be affected by any change in the schedule on Saturday mornings," said Jim Allison with BART.

KCBS' Margie Shafer Report:

This weekend, BART will provide informational fliers about the proposal, as well as surveys at four San Francisco stations. The following weekend there will be on-board passenger surveys taken.

"Essentially, the service change would be that we run 30-minutes later on Friday night, and delay Saturday morning service by 20 minutes, which is one train," said Allison.

Bus service would be offered as an early morning option.

The board of directors is expected to vote on the proposal in November, and any change would go into effect in February.
