BART offering extended service on New Year’s Eve

BART will offer extended service on New Year’s Eve. As the date falls on a Friday, BART will run regular weekday service that will be extended in the evening to allow people to ring in the new year from various locations in the Bay Area.

For those celebrating in downtown San Francisco, the last East Bay-bound train running through downtown San Francisco will depart around 1:30 a.m., while the last Southbound train heading toward Millbrae will run through Downtown San Francisco at 2:10 a.m.

“The regular last trains of evening (Yellow, Blue, and Orange lines) will be dispatched from the end of their lines at midnight and then at 1 a.m., we will run another set of last trains of the evening to serve 48 out of our 50 stations,” according to BART.

Unlike previous years, BART will not run skip-stop service on New Years Eve.

“All trains will make their regular stops, except for the 1 a.m. dispatch which will not stop at SFO or OAK airports,” the transit agency said. 

1 a.m. extended service details:

  • Only the Yellow line (Millbrae to Antioch) will run transbay. Riders heading from San Francisco towards Richmond, Berryessa, and Dublin will need to transfer. The train will not serve SFO.
  • Southbound Yellow line (Antioch to Millbrae) trains will run to Millbrae, stopping at all stations except SFO.
  • The Blue line will operate from Bay Fair to Dublin only (If travelling from San Francisco, Dublin-bound riders need to transfer at 12th Street to a Berryessa (Orange line) bound train and then transfer to a Dublin (Blue line) train at Bay Fair to complete their trip. These transfers will be timed meets to reduce travel time.
  • The Orange line (Richmond to Berryessa) will also run hourly to coincide with the other trains. Riders coming from San Francisco who need to transfer to a Richmond-bound train will do so at MacArthur; riders who need to transfer to a Berryessa-bound train (or Dublin) will do so at 12th Street. These transfers will be timed meets to reduce travel time. BART to OAK service will not be operating after regular BART hours.
