BART Weekend Closures Between Daly City & Glen Park Stations July-October 2016

BART will close the tracks between Glen Park and Daly City stations on multiple weekends between the end of July and October including Labor Day weekend. The transit agency will be making vital repairs to their tracks including adding sound dampening equipment to the curved trackway in order to reduce noise from the trains. Crews will work 24 hours a day during the shutdown. Other work will include improvements to Balboa Park Station and tree trimming along the trackway.

Weekends - Subject to Change. Check here for updates.

July 30 & 31
August 13 & 14
August 20 & 21
September 3, 4, & 5 (Labor Day Weekend)
September 17 & 18
October 1 & 2
October 15 & 16

Balboa Park Station will be closed.

The closure will cause 20-40 minute delays to your travel–SFO and Millbrae passengers should add 1 hour to their trip.

SamTrans will provide free express shuttle buses between Daly City and Glen Park stations. The bus ride will take approximately 15-20 minutes and all buses will be accessible. SFMTA will provide a free local shuttle for the three stations: Glen Park, Balboa Park, and Daly City. This local service trip should take 10 minutes between Glen Park and Balboa Park station and 15 minutes between Balboa Park and Daly City station. There is additional regular paid service available from SFMTA on the J Church, 14R Mission Rapid, 14 Mission, and 49 Mission-Van Ness lines that provide service to BART stations like Glen Park and 24th Street.

Caltrain service will run as usual and may be a good alternative for folks travelling to/from Millbrae Station or elsewhere on the Peninsula. Peninsula passengers may wish to take Caltrain to Giants games.

Service from Richmond (Red line) will be limited and will stop at Montgomery Station. There is no Red line service on Sundays. Pittsburg/Bay Point line train service will end at Glen Park station. Dublin (Blue line) trains will stop at 24th Street station. Passengers on trains from Dublin going to Daly City or SFO/Millbrae will need to transfer to a SFO train at 24th Street and then transfer to the free shuttle bus service at Glen Park to continue to Daly City.

From Daly City there will be trains to/from Millbrae and trains to/from SFO. Customers will need to follow signs and directions from BART employees to board the correct train for their destination.

BART will have extra staff and signs at the stations to help you with your trip. They understand that this will be inconvenient for you and appreciate your patience.
