Monday’s shelter in place emergency order from local counties will not affect BART service, agency officials said.

“BART will continue to provide regular service for riders performing essential activities and for riders travelling to and from ‘essential business’ work, with long enough trains to allow for social distancing,” the agency said in statement.

Based on ridership levels last week and over the weekend, social distancing is happening on BART.  Last week BART served 24% to 61% fewer riders depending on the day of the week.

There is enough space for riders to remain 6 feet from each other. Increased cleaning and disinfecting are continuing in stations and trains.
