MAJOR ESCALATOR REPAIRS

AT EMBARCADERO & MONTGOMERY STATIONS

BEGINS JULY 24, 2017

Dear Neighbor:

BART will remove two street-level escalators from service at both Embarcadero and Montgomery stations beginning Monday, July 24, 2017.

Embarcadero Station - Market and Davis Street entrance escalator

This is a major repair that will replace the escalator controller unit with a new solid-state unit along with other repairs.  The unit will be out of service for 12 weeks, until approximately the middle of October.

Montgomery Station - Market and 2ND Street entrance escalator

This is a major repair that will replace the escalator controller unit with a new solid-state unit along with other repairs.  The unit will be out of service for 12 weeks, until approximately the middle of October.

BART will perform the same work on twelve escalator units at the following stations over the course of two years: Embarcadero, Montgomery, 16th and 24th Mission stations. The work being done involves major electrical system overhaul of existing escalators that continue to malfunction.  This repair work is expected to be complete by 2018 and will result in more reliable escalators and access.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.   Please share this information with customers, members, constituents, and friends.   Thank you!
