OAKLAND (CBS SF) – As BART progresses with its power cable replacement project, trains will run again until midnight on Sunday starting February 14.
Since before the pandemic, the transportation service has worked to replace power cables in the San Francisco tunnel with Measure RR funding approved by voters.

BART typically cuts its service from 5 lines to 3 lines on Sundays to give crews space to work on cables. BART on Twitter said the project cut construction work late on Sunday night by 15 months thanks to reduced hours during the pandemic.
In response, BART will also operate a 5-line service on Sundays when single-track construction is not in place.
The service has allocated 16 Sundays for 3-line single-track service this year to complete the project.

Also from February 14, Dublin passengers can travel to Berryessa and San Jose with a Blue Line train that waits on the platform opposite Bay Fair during all operating hours.
BART will also update the transfer schedule between its hours of service and those of Caltrain, although BART said it expects little change except for extended Sunday schedules.
BART said weekday service will remain unchanged except for minor departure time changes.
