Late hours for BART on New YearÕs Eve
Submitted By BART
BART will extend service until 3 a.m. on New Year's Eve and deploy extra staff and trains to help get people home from their festivities. BART will run a normal weekday evening service schedule which will extend until 3 am. Trains will run every 20 minutes after midnight with extra trains standing by in downtown San Francisco after the fireworks show.
To further ease platform crowding at the busiest stations, Embarcadero, Montgomery, and West Oakland, beginning at 8 p.m., BART will utilize a Òskip-stopÓ train pattern into and out of San Francisco with one important change from past years:
Going into San Francisco:
Trains from the Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont lines will not stop at Montgomery Street Station but will stop at Embarcadero Station.
After the fireworks end:
Passengers on the Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont lines must use Embarcadero Station, as trains heading to Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont will not stop at Montgomery Street Station. New this yearÉ Dublin/Pleasanton and Fremont trains will not stop at West Oakland and will make their first East Bay stop at Lake Merritt.
