BART Stations escalator and entrance closures

Civic Center Station entrance at 8th and Market closed starting 5/9/22 while a new protective escalator canopy is built. Entrances open during construction include Market and 7th, Market and Hyde St., and UN Plaza. Work is expected to be completed by November 2022.

Embarcadero Station escalator closed for replacement beginning Tuesday 3/15. Work is expected to be completed by this Fall.

Masks once again required on BART

On April 28, the BART Board of Directors approved a temporary amendment to the District’s Code of Conduct to require riders to wear masks in paid areas of the system with limited exceptions. This requirement applies to trains and all portions of stations beyond the fare gates. Children ages two and under as well as people with medical conditions that prevent them from wearing masks are exempt from the mandate. The rule is effective until July 18, 2022, unless it is extended by the BART Board.

Free masks are available at station agent booths and from all safety staff. As with the previous federal mandate, BART PD will continue its education-based enforcement of the mask requirement by offering free masks to anyone who needs one before taking any enforcement action which could include a citation up to $75 or being ejected from the paid area.

BART has installed MERV 14 (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) air filters on all train cars. These filters are dense enough to trap the virus and provide an extra layer of protection to riders. Air is replaced every 70 seconds onboard cars mixing filtered air with fresh air. That means the circulation on BART train cars is better than most offices. In addition, all BART employees are fully vaccinated.

Please note: The Mission Bay Shuttle strongly urges transit riders to continue to mask for their own, and the ongoing safety of others.

Shuttle Mask Mandate Terminated

4/20/22

Good afternoon, Mission Bay Community:

In keeping with BART’s announcement on April 20th that masks are now voluntary, but strongly recommended on BART trains, we are also rescinding our mandatory masking policy on the Mission Bay Shuttle.

Today, the California Department of Health also terminated its statewide order for masking on public transit; the TSA terminated its mandate earlier in the week.

While these mandates are no longer in effect, there may be legislation reinstating masks on public transit in the near future.  In the meantime, we strongly urge transit riders to continue to mask for their own, and the ongoing safety of others.

Thank you.

New Parking Meters

SFMTA will be replacing all parking meters in San Francisco. Approximately half the parking meters in the City will be upgraded to new single-space parking meters.  The other half, including Mission Bay will get multi-space paystations with a new pay-by-license-plate parking system. The new meters have several benefits:

  • Larger and more legible screens
  • More intuitive user interface
  • More resistant to vandalism
  • More powerful batteries, so meters will remain operational a much higher percentage of the time

Here’s how the pay-by-plate meters work:

  • Instead of entering your space number to pay for parking, you will enter your license plate number.
  • When you pull into a parking space, head to the nearest paystation on the block, or reach for your smartphone to use the PayByPhone app, key in your license plate number and pay.
  • Since the PayByPhone app stores your license plate number, you won’t have to remember or type it in every time when using the app.

New overhead signage and decals on the paystations will let you know that the pay-by-plate system is in effect

Set up Clipper Card on your Mobile Device

You can now use your phone instead of a plastic Clipper Card to use BART:

  • Use your phone at the fare gate instead of the plastic Clipper card
  • Add funds to your Clipper account (whether you’re using a Clipper Card or your phone).
  • Funds are available for immediate use.
  • Download the free app from google play or apple
