ACOUSTIC IMPACTS OF BART: INTERIM SERVICE FINDINGS

The report documents the findings and methodologies developed during a study of BART sound and vibration levels. The findings focus on: delineation of impacted regions, major factors affecting BART-generated sound, prototype vs. operational sound levels, BART vs. other transportation sound sources and BART-generated vibration levels. BART-generated sound levels were derived from direct wayside measurements and indirectly from on-board recording of sound levels throughout the BART system. Ambient community sound levels were based on predictive techniques verified by field measurements.
