There will be no BART train service on selected weekends between March and June as BART crews perform vital repairs to the equipment and tracks between San Leandro and Bay Fair stations. This work is part of their “Building a Better BART” program. BART crews cannot complete these critical trackway repairs during the overnight hours when they are normally closed for maintenance, which is why they require this extra time. Once the job is complete, you will experience a safer, quieter and more reliable ride.

Bus Bridge between San Leandro and Bay Fair Stations provided by AC Transit

They will have a “bus bridge” during normal service hours. The bus bridge will cause 30 minute to 1 hour delays for some customers. Customers travelling between Fremont to Richmond will have to transfer to the bus bridge at Bay Fair, back to a train at San Leandro and then transfer to a Richmond-bound train (they recommend Lake Merritt Station).

There will be extra staff in our stations to assist you. Follow signs and listen to announcements for important information.

Travel tips

  • Consider using a station not affected by the bus bridge if you are able.
  • Lock your bike at our stations rather than bringing them on crowded buses.
  • Check www.bart.gov for the most up-to-day information about the closure
