This weekend, June 1 to 2, there will be no BART service — as in no trains running, bus bridge instead — between 24th Street & Mission Station and Daly City, so plan accordingly.

Anyone trying to get to or from SFO on BART this coming weekend, or anywhere south of 24th Street for that matter, should be aware that track work and vegetation maintenance will be taking place between 24th Street and Daly City stations. That means that Glen Park and Balboa Park stations will be closed, and trains that would normally service Daly City, Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno, Millbrae, and SFO, will be turning back at 24th Street.

There will also be no Green Line (Berryessa to Daly City) service at all.

BART alerts us that June 1 and 2 will be used for some much needed repair work on the tracks.

"The work team will make the most of its time in the closed trackway," BART says in a release. "Crews will replace aging rail, install new equipment to support the traction power system, enhance tunnel lighting, and advance other key improvements. The equipment being replaced is decades old and has outlived its design life."

BART adds, "Riders will enjoy a smoother, safer, more reliable, and quieter ride once the projects are complete."

In addition to "hopper bus service" that BART will provide to the two stations between 24th and Mission and Daly City, SamTrans will also be providing direct bus service between 24th and Daly City stations.

If you were planning to take BART from SFO into the city or to Oakland, be aware that you will also have to get off and take a bus at Daly City. And the last northbound departure from SFO will be at 11:47 pm — with the final scheduled train of the night canceled.

BART tells us that there is now more track maintenance work going on across the 131-mile, 50 station system than at any time in the agency's 50-year history. This weekend's work is part of that overall effort to improve BART safety and reliability.
