BART earns highest security rating
Submitted By BART
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) awarded BART the highest security rating possible following a comprehensive assessment of BART's security program. BART received a "Gold Standard" rating by attaining high scores across all categories of the TSA's most recent Baseline Assessments for Security Enhancement (BASE). BART is among only 16 rail and mass transit agencies from across the nation to have earned the "Gold Standard" rating in the most recent assessment.
"We are honored to have received this recognition from the TSA because it reflects our commitment to ensuring the safety and security of our passengers, our employees, and our system," said BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey. "We ask the public to continue to play a key role by reporting behavior or conditions that are suspicious to BART Police at (510) 464-7000."
