BART Station Elevator Modernization Program
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) is proposing to modernize elevators at stations, maintenance areas, and shops throughout the five-county BART system. As an elevator ages, the equipment becomes obsolete or is no longer supported, which makes it difficult to find replacement parts. This contributes to deteriorating ride performance, unplanned outages, and increased servicing, which correlates to more planned outages. The BART Elevator Modernization Program includes design and construction phases for renovating various components of the elevators, including the controller, cab, doors, remote monitoring system, drive system, electrical wiring, and fixtures. In addition, work will include modernizing the equipment in the elevator machine rooms and maintaining compliance with applicable safety codes.
