Ventilation on BART key piece of safety protocol


BART is getting the word out that its ventilation process keeps riders as safe as possible.

The air on BART is filtered more effectively than that in a typical indoor setting like a grocery store or pharmacy, with an entire train car’s air being replaced about every 70 seconds, according to the agency. That was the case before Covid-19.

As BART implements a 15-step Welcome Back Plan with new health and safety measures, ventilation is more important than ever.  

Wearing a mask is a first line of protection and BART’s Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system provides another safety layer, agency officials said.
