BART Is Going Extra Lengths To Protect Riders At One Bay Area Station!

BART is going extra lengths to protect riders at one Bay Area station.

Three new emergency call boxes have been installed at the Coliseum Station in Oakland. They are on each end of the platform and one in the middle.

There is a direct intercom on the call boxes that are connected to BART police dispatch. The boxes also have a camera that is activated when the box is in use. 

Dispatchers will have a real-time connection with riders through both audio and camera visuals to better understand what is happening.

If the call boxes prove effective and popular, they could be installed throughout the BART system
