Accessible Fare Gates and Next Generation Fare Gates
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
In order to modernize BART’s existing fare gates to provide more reliable systems and combat fare evasion, BART will be replacing all the fare gates at its stations and providing new fare gates at station elevators that currently do not have fare gates. Currently there are 715 fare gates systemwide. Design and implementation of the new faregates will be completed through the Next Generation Fare Gate Project. The new fare gates will be taller and more resistant to fare evasion. Fare gates will be placed in approximately the same location within the station concourse as the current gates. No other station modifications will be required. In parallel, Accessible Fare Gates are being installed at stations with elevators along with an enclosure to prevent fare evasion.
