List of Bay Area Rapid Transit stations
Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a heavy rail rapid transit system in the San Francisco Bay Area. It is administered by the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District government agency in three California counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, and San Francisco. BART is the fifth busiest rapid transit system in the United States, averaging between 390,000 to 420,000 weekday passengers in 2013.
For most of the week BART trains run on five routes; four branch eastward from San Francisco while the Richmond–Fremont line stays in the East Bay. (Nights and weekends a route or two shifts slightly or quits running.) In September 1972 BART's first route opened: Fremont to MacArthur, extended to Richmond in January 1973. Concord to MacArthur started in May 1973 and Montgomery Street to Daly City began in November 1973. The original system was completed in September 1974 when trains first carried passengers through the underwater Transbay Tube. BART's three routes then were Concord–Daly City, Fremont-Daly City and Richmond–Fremont; Richmond to Daly City didn't get all-day direct trains until July 1980.
The Concord-Daly City line was extended to North Concord/Martinez in 1995 and to Colma and Pittsburg/Bay Point in 1996. BART's fifth route, the Dublin/Pleasanton–Daly City line, began when the branch to Dublin/Pleasanton opened in 1997. The San Mateo County line was extended south from Colma to San Francisco International Airport and Millbrae in 2003. BART passengers can reach Oakland International Airport on the AirBART bus from Coliseum/Oakland Airport station.
The system has 44 stations: 16 on the surface, 13 elevated, and 15 underground (i.e. subway). Nineteen stations are in Alameda County, eleven are in Contra Costa, and eight are in San Francisco. Six stations are in San Mateo County, though the county is not part of SF BART district. Fremont is the southernmost station and Pittsburg/Bay Point is the northernmost. As of 2013[update], Embarcadero has the highest ridership and North Concord/Martinez the lowest.
The following table lists the 44 stations now in use.
