BART Lake Merritt-Fruitvale Closure – Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29

Priscilla Kalugdan News Archive, Service Alerts


BART will conduct track work between its Lake Merritt and Fruitvale stations on selected weekends between April and July. No trains will run between Lake Merritt and Fruitvale BART stations and the Lake Merritt BART station will be closed. Capitol Corridor passengers connecting to BART at Richmond station traveling to San Francisco will be unaffected.

Capitol Corridor passengers who connect to BART at Coliseum traveling to San Francisco will be affected during these weekends. For travel to San Francisco, passengers can connect to the Capitol Corridor/Amtrak bus at the Emeryville Station, which provides service to bus stops downtown San Francisco, or they can take the Capitol Corridor to Richmond and transfer to BART at that station. Passengers traveling to Dublin/Pleasanton on BART must take BART to 19th Street, transfer to a bus and then board a BART train at Fruitvale to reach your destination.

This work is part of BART’s efforts to rebuild the system to make it safer, more reliable and to reduce traffic. Read more details and see a map of the closure on the BART website:
