bart_generic1.jpgRelying on BART to get you around this long holiday weekend? Well, listen up, because its schedule might not be what you’re used to.

For Sunday, July 4th, BART will operate on its regular Sunday schedule, but will provide some extra service at Embarcadero that night to accommodate the post-fireworks crowds.

BART suggests that riders buy round trip tickets to avoid waiting in line for the ride back home. The Pier 39 fireworks will start at approximately 9:30 p.m, but there will also be a pre-fireworks concert there at 3:00 p.m.

BART riders can connect to Muni through the shared stations in downtown San Francisco. To map out your Independence Day itinerary, check out BART’s Quick Planner or Muni’s Trip Planner.

On Monday, July 5th, BART will not run its usual extra peak-period trains on the Pittsburg/Bay Point Line.

BART will run trains every 15 minutes on all five lines from 4:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. After that trains will run every 20 minutes instead. However, for those going to the A’s v.s Yankees game at the Coliseum, BART will run longer trains for you all.

BART expects fewer riders since many businesses will be closed on Monday in observance of Independence Day. BART’s administration offices will similarly be closed that day.
