BART Modernizing Embarcadero and Montgomery Stations - Your Feedback is Requested

BOMA San Francisco Members:

Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is reviewing various improvement options to ease crowding at its two busiest stations – Embarcadero and Montgomery.

BART's average weekday ridership has now surpassed 400,000 per day and, during peak periods, almost half of all riders either board or exit at the Embarcadero or Montgomery stations. Aside from experiencing the most foot traffic, these two stations have the smallest platforms in the system.

As part of BART’s Station Modernization Program they are developing a comprehensive redesign of these stations to make the rider experience more comfortable and enjoyable. They want to hear from riders who use these stations.

Join the conversation by going to the project webpage to see the proposed modernization plan and take an online survey that will help BART prioritize the improvements.

Proposed station improvements include: 
  • Building new side platforms on the opposite side of the existing tracks
  • Installing platform screen doors adjacent to the trackway (like on the SFO AirTrain)
  • Reconfiguring platform for more efficient use of space 
  • Upgrading elevator and escalators
In addition, BART is identifying other modernization needs at Embarcadero and Montgomery to improve station functionality, safety, access, appearance, and the overall customer experience.
