BART Blue Sky

Submitted By BART

BART has been thinking about the environment since before we carried our first passenger in 1972. For example, ours are the lightest subway cars in the world, so they consume less energy. We are also 100 percent electric and source two-thirds of that power from clean hydro and renewable energy sources. We think about the environment, today, and will think about it, tomorrow. Right now, BART is planning the Fleet of the Future, new rolling stock that will further our commitment to environmental responsibility.
