BART ON THE BALLOT

Sep 13, 2016 06:33PM, Published by Pam Kessler, Categories: Travel, News




BART was once the region’s crown jewel. Now it’s our lifeline. After 44 years of operation, the beleaguered transportation system will ask voters in November to approve a historic $3.5 billion bond measure. The funding is key to BART’s plans to rebuild and renew its aging system, which faces increasing structural problems and congested trains. If two-thirds of voters in Contra Costa, Alameda and San Francisco counties approve the bond measure, BART promises the funds will be “carefully monitored to ensure the public’s money is protected and spent wisely” to repair, fix, and replace worn rail, leaking tunnels, track circuitry, and power transmission equipment. The revenue will also help BART increase its fleet size by 775 cars and meet modern population demands. Complete details can be found at bart.gov.
