BART’s Blue Sky Festival to Highlight Eco-Friendly Transportation

In honor of Earth Day, BART is holding its fifth annual Blue Sky Festival today in San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza.

The BART celebration, which started at 11 a.m. and runs through 1:30 p.m., will provide people with opportunities to learn about the environment and will also include eco-friendly services and activities such as valet bicycle parking and a Segway obstacle course, according to the agency.

Additionally, there will be more than 50 exhibitors and carnival games with an environmentally friendly twist, BART officials said.

Contests will include prizes such as a free $6 BART ticket, a folding bike, a City CarShare membership and a ticket to the SF Green Film Festival, BART officials said.

According to the agency, festival-goers can also enter a contest for a chance to win a $100 Clipper card simply by taking a picture and uploading it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #BARTBlueSky.

For those who can’t make it to the festival, BART officials said people can still enter the giveaways on their BARTable website, with prizes being given away today and next Wednesday.
