BART completes Daly City Shop renovation


On Oct. 29, Bay Area Rapid Transit officials and local representatives plan to unveil new, state-of-the-art equipment at BART’s recently renovated and expanded Daly City Shop and Maintenance Yard.

During the 22-month, $18 million project, BART installed a new wheel truing machine, car lifts, transfer tracks and a car turnout. The agency improved the yard for so that it could handle an expected increase in ridership when BART opens its 8.7-mile extension to San Francisco International Airport in January.

The project also is part of BART’s 10-year, $1.2 billion Systemwide Renovation Program, which is 90 percent complete. The program includes refurbishing 439 cars from the original fleet, installing new automatic fare-collection equipment, and enhancing and expanding all four BART maintenance facilities.
