FTA green lights BART's Warm Springs extension

The Federal Transit Administration recently determined Bay Area Rapid Transit’s (BART) proposed Warm Springs extension meets environmental requirements.

Now, BART can acquire additional right of way for the 5.4-mile line, which will run between the existing Fremont Station south to Fremont’s Warm Springs district. In addition, the project is eligible to receive state-administered federal funds.

Once funding is secured, the project is expected to take five years to complete.
