New features debut on BART platform signs


Starting on the weekend, BART riders could see additional features on digital platform signs.

The new systemwide signs will help riders know whether an approaching train is a legacy train with two doors or a Fleet of the Future train with three doors.

On BART's new Fleet of the Future cars, the wheelchair area is located near the middle door.

In addition, details on scheduled trains that are canceled or removed from service will also be announced on platform signs.

Previously, BART Trip Planner showed cancelled trips but the platform signs didn't. The train would disappear from the signs and public service announcements would be made at the station.

The new feature will help those riders who may be deciding whether to wait for a less crowded train.

BART staff is also working to add "delayed" notices to the platform signs, for trains that are holding down the line.

Wow, BART should be proud of such accomplishments. Perhaps they can now tell us where the $3.9 Billion bond money went which was foolishly voted in during the 2016 election. At the time, we were told it had to be used for infrastructure improvements and new trains, not salaries. Where are the new trains? Why are elevators still constantly out of order? Why do many stations still look and smell like a sewer?

BART continues to collect a supplemental sales tax of 0.25% in BART counties and raises rates on a regular basis. What are we getting for all the money that is being spent??? Another California agency which is out of control!!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
