If you're planning on taking BART through Oakland this weekend, they have some closures you will want to know about.
From BART HQ:
This is the final weekend of this work--9/22-9/23
We will be making major repairs on the track and other infrastructure between 19th Street and West Oakland stations. Here is a pdf of the map.
AC Transit will provide free bus service between the stations. The trip should take 10-15 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE: The online scheduler does not reflect temporary changes during this work. The real time departures feature will provide information on when the next train is coming/leaving.
Trains in the East Bay will run at least every 20 minutes between Richmond and Warm Springs and Antioch and Dublin. All transfers, including to the bus for service to West Oakland (to catch trains to the West Bay) should be made at 19th Street Station. The West Bay service to San Bruno will be every 10 minutes and to SFO/Millbrae every 20 minutes.
Trains will not run between West Oakland and Lake Merritt and West Oakland and 19th Street. Frequent buses will be provided instead at 19th St. Station.
The work will take place on the following dates: 8/4-5, 8/25-26, Labor Day Weekend 9/1-3, and 9/22-23. Labor Day is a holiday and trains will run on a modified Sunday schedule with longer trains and some extra trains for the As game. On Sunday 9/2 and Monday 9/3 the first train from Colma (7:57am) to Antioch is cancelled. 8:18am will be the first train from Colma to Antioch.
Please be aware there will be limited parking at West Oakland during these weekends.
We will stage equipment and supplies on 4th Street between Washington Street and Martin Luther King Way, there will be lights and noise during the work weekends.
This work is made possible through voter-approved Measure RR bond funds. We know that this work will temporarily inconvenience you. We appreciate your patience.
