BART changes schedule

Monday September 09, 2002

In anticipation of the opening of its new service to San Francisco International Airport early next year, BART is adjusting train schedules effective today. 

Most departure times will change by three minutes, except on the Dublin/Pleasanton line, where departure times will change by up to six minutes. 

On the Richmond line, timed transfers at MacArthur Station in Oakland will occur only during evening hours. At other times, passengers should board direct trains bound for their final destination. 

Another principal change under the new schedule will be that the Dublin/Pleasanton trains, which now terminate in Daly City, will go all the way to Colma. 

For specific information on the new timetables, visit BART's web site at www.bart.gov or pick up a copy of the new “All About BART” brochure. 

The new airport line requires modification of current BART train schedules to ensure that the addition of new services goes smoothly and efficiently, according to a transit system news release.
