 Bay Area Rapid Transit - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In addition, Muni trains are not coordinated with BART schedules, and require a separate ticket for the majority of passengers.
There is fare coordination between Muni and BART in that Muni monthly pass holders are permitted to use BART for free within San Francisco city limits and BART passengers can purchase an add on pass for a half month that allows unlimited rides on Muni.

 San Francisco CITYSCAPE :: the online journal of bay area urban design [ Transit: BART ]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
BART serves major destinations including downtown San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley (which is adjacent the UC campus); the San Francisco and Oakland airports (the latter via a shuttle); and the Oakland Coliseum and Arena.
BART is now planning a DMU extension of the Pittsburg/Bay Point line to Antioch in eastern Contra Costa County; it might eventually be extended to Byron or even Tracy, and if local officials will ever settle for anything less than "full" BART, another line might be built from Dublin/Pleasanton to Livermore or perhaps Tracy.
As we've said before, what Bay Area transit ultimately needs is to be both more centralized — as in a single management structure that can better coordinate service — and decentralized, in that the unique needs of each corridor should determine the mode used, with a focus on connectivity at key points.

 [PushBack] Bill Wattenburg’s Background: BART—Bay Area Rapid Transit System
BART and Westinghouse engineers insisted that this was a “one in a hundred-million failure that could never happen again.” BART would not cooperate with state agencies that wanted to investigate these problems before giving BART approval to operate the trains.
BART public relations issued a press release saying that Wattenburg was trying to “dazzle the press with scientific hocus-pocus.” The Bay Area papers all included the BART accusation in their stories.
One group of concerned BART directors demanded that he be allowed to speak at all meetings as a public representative and rebut anything he felt was not accurate in what the general manager and the BART engineers were telling the directors.

 Engineering Geology of the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) System, 1964-75
BART was also the first rapid transit system in America to be fitted with a automatic train control, capable of handling 50 trains simultaneously (developed by Westinghouse).
The study concluded that BART must continue to monitor damage to their linings and make periodic adjustments to the tracks, but they were unable to calculate how much future realignment can be accommodated, because that depends on the structural reaction of the tunnels to the imposed shear strain, which is spread over a zone.
BART was one of the first high-visibility projects where tunnel boring machines (TBMs) were used extensively in a variety of mixed ground conditions, by a number of different contractors.

 Fruitvale Transit Village Project , Oakland, CA - Environmental Justice - Case Studies
The Fruitvale BART Transit Village is the outgrowth of a growing interest on the part of the Unity Council in developing a project that would have a large impact on the community of Fruitvale.
BART entered into an exclusive negotiating agreement with the Unity Council, agreed to a land swap and relocation of its parking facilities at the Fruitvale station, and worked collaboratively with a community on a project initiated by the community.
Unless the City of Oakland continues to work closely with BART and Fruitvale community leaders to manage future development in the area in accordance with the transit village concept and the community plan for the area, the original focus of the project may be lost.

 USATODAY.com - Bay Area Rapid Transit strike looms   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
BART management said the major sticking point was finding a compromise that would not further burden riders, who have already been hit with fare increases and parking charges.

Larry Hendel, chief negotiator for the transit system's two largest unions, said he had his "fingers crossed" that a strike could be averted.
