Station Access Signage and Wayfinding Upgrade Program

Document Title
Station Access Signage and Wayfinding Upgrade Program
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The program would replace and upgrade access and wayfinding signage at all 50 stations throughout the five-county BART District. In the years since BART’s station access signage was last updated, management of station access facilities has evolved substantially, and existing signage no longer adequately reflects the needs of users or facility management. This access signage includes pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular circulation; bike and vehicle parking; and bus areas and various loading zones. The new signs will be compliant with ADA requirements and utilize universal design elements and international icons. Signs would be located primarily between the station’s roll-down gates and the station’s property line. Installation of new signs around the BART District would be phased over time as funding becomes available or installed as part of larger station improvement projects.
