How to take BART

Planning your trip

Select a station below or through the map above for access and parking information on individual stations.

Riding BART


At the station, you can buy a Clipper card from a BART ticket machine. You will keep that card throughout your trip on BART. You can also pay fare by setting up Clipper on your phone with Apple Pay or Google Pay, and skip the ticket machines. BART fares vary depending on distance traveled. Old paper BART tickets are no longer available for sale but existing tickets can still be accepted.

Proceed through the BART faregates with your Clipper card. Look for overhead signs and walk to the platform that is served by your train.

On the platform, board the train that goes to your station. The overhead electronic signs on the platform will show the destination, not line color, of the trains as they arrive. The train operator may also announce the destination of the train.

On the train, the train operator will announce the next station just before arrival. The train will stop and open doors at every station along the line.

Once you get to the destination station, exit the BART faregates with your Clipper card.

Disabled access

BART trains provide level boarding on all cars at all stops. All stations have elevators to provide access to station concourse and/or station platforms from the street. See the elevator advisory for elevator outage. If the elevator is out of service, contact BART station agent or its call center for directions on alternate service, including paratransit. At some stations, elevators to/from the platforms stop on the station concourse outside the paid area of the station. Exiting riders are required to use the emergency swing gate to re-enter the paid area to process the fare or subject to citation.

BART stations have wide faregates for disabled passengers as well as other passengers with strollers, bikes, or luggage.
