BART Service Transbay Tube Shutdown
September 5-7th

BART is encouraging travelers to plan ahead and to find alternate means of transportation across the Bay during two upcoming closures of transbay train service. BART will close the West Oakland Station and will not run trains between West Oakland and Embarcadero stations during Labor Day weekend while they repair a critical section of track near the Transbay Tube.

BART will offer lifeline bus service between 19th Street in Oakland and the Temporary Transbay Terminal in San Francisco, but the buses are intended only for those who have no other options. The buses will carry customers from 19th Street Station in Oakland to the Temporary Transbay Terminal in San Francisco (a 2 block walk to the Embarcadero Station) or from there back to the East Bay. There will be no additional charge for the bus. The bus bridge will cause 1 to 2 hour delays for some customers.

Accommodations will be available for people with disabilities.

There will be some shuttle buses from West Oakland Station, which will be closed, to the 19th Street Station for West Oakland area residents only.  These shuttles will pick up and drop off during BART operating hours and will be on 15 minute headways, departing both sides (West Oakland and 19th Street) at quarter hours. No fares will be collected on this neighborhood shuttle for West Oakland residents.  We are not able to keep West Oakland Station open during this work because we can not easily turn trains around from that station.  With only two tracks, there would be very significant delays in the East Bay if we attempted to run trains through West Oakland during the work.  

During the shutdowns, customers are encouraged to use other public transit transbay options such as ferries and AC Transit service.  Check outwww.511.org for trip planning.  San Francisco Bay Ferry will have additional service on its Alameda/Oakland/San Francisco and Vallejo/San Francisco routes during the BART closures.  AC Transitalso has its transbay service

Riders are encouraged to lock their bikes at our stations rather than bringing them on crowded buses.

During the shutdowns, train service within the East Bay and within the West Bay and the Peninsula will be more frequent than during a typical weekend.  Check out our tips page for more specific details.

BART's Transit Information Center will operate special hours. Riders with questions can call (510) 465-BART (2278).  

Extra staff, including bilingual employees will be at 19th Street Station, Embarcadero, and the Temporary Transbay Terminal to help passengers.

The dates and times of the track closures are as follows:

Date                             Track Work Times

September 5-7              From end of service Friday and all day Saturday, Sunday and Monday
