@shakatron BART was built to transport far fewer people, and much of our system has reached the end of its useful life. This is our reality.
The Fleet of the Future is closer than ever to becoming a reality for BART riders. Your chance to get an up close look at a test train for the new fleet is coming. BART will hold a series of FREE open house events in October. The first 200 visitors each day will receive a commemorative toy train. The toys were donated to BART.
The Open House events will occur on a station platform at these dates and locations:
Saturday, October 15th at Pleasant Hill/Contra Costa Centre Station 11 am- 4 pm
Sunday, October 16th at MacArthur Station 11 am - 4 pm
Saturday, October 29th at Dublin/Pleasanton Station 11 am - 4 pm
Sunday, October 30th at El Cerrito del Norte Station 11 am - 4 pm
*A San Francisco location is not possible because it would cause service delays.
@cliberti We have 3 hours a night to do maintenance on a system built to serve 100k per week that now serves 430k per day. #ThisIsOurReality
Like @iamjohnoliver has said on @lastweektonight, infrastructure isn't sexy - but without it, no one moves. #ThisIsOurReality
