BART: A POSITIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Bay Area Rapid Transit is having a significant effect on the environment in four areas--energy consumption, air pollution, noise production and in its impact on the development of the land. BART offers substantial advantages or savings over the automobile in all but one of these--noise production, and even here, though a well-muffled automobile will produce slightly less noise than a BART train, the train is less noisy than freeway traffic. In terms of overall energy consumed, the savings over the automobile transportation will be large.
