BART Receives Website Award for Content Management

The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) District recently received the 2014 Blue Drop Award as “Best Government Site” for its official website. This award recognizes users who maximize the capabilities of Drupal, an open source content management system.

BART explained that its website has thousands of moving parts and yet must display correct real-time information to riders while also providing uninterrupted service in case of emergencies and heavy website traffic.

The migration to the new content management system, according to BART, complies with all applicable accessibility guidelines, including Americans with Disabilities Act Best Practices for Website Accessibility.
