BART is turning 50 years old and is inviting the public to help it celebrate. Riders are encouraged to save the date for a public celebration at Lake Merritt Station on Saturday, September 10, 2022. The 50th Birthday Party and Family Fun Festival is free to the public and will be from 11am-4pm.
The event will include food trucks, music, games, prizes, and the opening of a time capsule.
BART is also thanking its riders and encouraging more people to return to the system by offering a 50% discount for the entire month of September. Riders using Clipper will get half off all published BART fares in September.
That includes 50% off already discounted fares for youth, senior, Regional Transportation Connection, Clipper Start, and Gator Pass riders.
Plans to celebrate BART’s 50th year of serving the Bay Area are scheduled to be discussed at Thursday’s BART Board meeting. You can learn more about BART’s anniversary at bart.gov/50years
