PRELIMINARY FINDINGS SOUND. THE ENVIRONMENT PROJECT BART IMPACT PROGRAM

This report presents early aspects of a measurement and analysis program to assess the acoustic impact of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) on its surrounding environment. It covers findings relative to simultaneous recordings of sound levels taken on-board BART trains and at wayside positions adjacent to the BART tract. These early findings will be combined with measurements of adjacent community ambient sound levels to arrive at an overall assessment of BART acoustic impact on its surroundings.
