BART returns to ‘near-regular’ service

The next generation of Clipper also opens the door for new discount programs, promotions, and potentially fare capping for BART riders.

Starting today, BART is operating at service levels nearing pre-pandemic levels, with increased frequencies, the extension of closing times from 9 p.m. to midnight Mondays through Saturdays and increased direct trips to SFO on weekdays.

Weekday service now operates from 5 a.m. to midnight, with 5-line service and 15-minute frequencies on all lines from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. ad 3-line service with 30-minute frequencies from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Saturday service is now from 6 a.m. through midnight with 5-line service from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and then 3-line service from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Sunday service will remain 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. with 3-line service and 30-minute frequencies to accommodate BART’s critical cable replacement project and other infrastructure rebuilding work. BART says it will improve Sunday service in February 2022.

BART is also increasing direct service to SFO from four trips during peak hours to eight, all serving downtown San Francisco and Oakland. BART’s system map has also been updated to eliminate the purple line shuttle between SFO and Millbrae.
