Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) will upgrade their mobile application later this month so that riders can track the location of trains in real time. 

The new app feature enables riders to see the type of train — new or legacy — that is arriving at a station and display canceled trips for each station to make it clear when a scheduled train has been removed from service, BART officials said in a press release.

In 2020, BART also plans to expand its parking payment options in the app to all stations, and to daily commuters. Currently, the app only offers parking payment options for Early Bird Express riders and carpoolers at select stations.
