PASSENGER DESIGN STANDARDS FOR BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT STATIONS
The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) stations have been designed and constructed for the basic purpose common to all rapid transit systems: to serve as points where large numbers of people can enter of leave the system expeditiously and conveniently. As the first such system ever constructed in the Far West, and the first completely new system constructed in the United States in a half century, BART stations were the result of many years of intensive planning as to suitable locations and facilities to be provided. An even greater effort was devoted during the design stage to ensure that each of the thirty-eight stations of the system would perform its intended function as well as integrate harmoniously with its environment.
