Get the scoop on an upcoming BART town hall, which will be held in San Francisco next month.

Over the course of the next six weeks, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) will host a series of town hall meetings.

If you are a current BART rider (or would be, if only some changes were made to the service), be sure to join the town hall and make your voice heard!

BART Town Hall: What Is It and Why Should You Participate?

As explained by BART:

“BART connects you to the people you love, the places you enjoy, and to the countless opportunities the Bay Area has to offer. We have a plan to rebuild our aging system after 44 years of service, and to reinvest in the parts of BART that keep you moving. 

“To that end, we will be holding three different telephone town hall events: one for each county in the BART District. During these meetings, you’ll hear from BART’s General Manager and Board Directors, as well as input and questions from BART riders about why system reinvestment is so important.

“This is your opportunity to add your voice to the mix, and to hear about what’s in BART’s plan for you and your county.”
