Link21 invites Northern California communities to attend fall educational events, provide feedback on BART and Regional Rail improvements
OAKLAND, CA — Link21 continues to invest in a more connected, equitable, and accessible future by working toward the goal of linking the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Regional Rail (commuter, intercity, and high speed) network throughout 21 counties – referred to as the “Megaregion” – in Northern California.
This past summer, community members from the Megaregion participated in a variety of virtual and in-person engagement events to discuss Link21 concepts and potential service improvements. Now this fall, Link21 is offering community members the opportunity to learn more about the type of train service, BART or Regional Rail, that would operate in the future train crossing between Oakland and San Francisco. Attendees will learn how these two options benefit riders, communities, and the Megaregion, plus how they differ. They will also have the chance to provide input to help the Link21 Program Team identify a recommendation for consideration of a Preliminary Project to be advanced by the BART and Capitol Corridor Boards of Directors in early 2024.
“The feedback we receive from people across our Northern California Megaregion will help us meet the needs of our diverse communities,” said Sadie Graham, Link21 Program Director for BART. “We can’t do this alone and need the public to continue being part of the planning process at every step of this generational undertaking.”
