BART IMPACTS ON HIGHWAY TRAFFIC AND TRANSIT RIDERSHIP

The 71-mile Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) System, serving San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and their suburbs, is the first regional-scale rapid transit system to open in the United States in over 50 years. This report is one of a series assessing the impacts of BART on transportation and travel in the Bay Area. The report documents what changes in aggregate highway traffic volumes, traffic congestion, bus ridership, and bus services have taken place in the four years since BART started service; and assesses the extent to which these changes may be attributable to BART.
