SAN FRANCISCO—BART is temporarily changing its schedule because of the decline in ridership due to the ‘Shelter in Place’ order until further notice.

Starting on Monday, March 23, BART’s weekday service will change from starting service at 5 a.m. and ending at midnight, to starting at 5 a.m. and ending at 9 p.m.

On Saturday, March 28, weekend service will begin at 8 a.m.—instead of 6 a.m. and end at 9 p.m. instead of midnight as currently scheduled.

All riders must board a train by 8:45 p.m. to be guaranteed service to their destination and train frequency will remain the same. For riders impacted by the change of service, BART recommends their Trip Planner to view canceled trains and find alternate routes to their destination.

BART continues to monitor ridership as data reveals a heavy decline since March 16; the day that the Official Health Order was released. Compared to February ridership, this week has shown an 89 percent decline.
