Circle Thursday, June 19 on your calendars
and get ready for a free BART ride.
June 19 is the one and only
day this year the Bay Area Air
Quality Management District
and the Metropolitan Trans-
portation Commission will
provide free rides on BART
and 29 other transit systems.
BART will be free until noon
Caltrain, Altamont Commuter Express (ACE)
and Amtrak Capitol Corridor trains, and
Golden Gate, Alameda-Oakland, Alameda-
Harbor Bay and Vallejo ferries will also be
free until noon. Bay Area bus and light-rail
systems will be free all day.
Plan your BART trip at www.bart.gov. To plan
trips on other transit systems, go to
www.511.org, and click “Transit.”
Daily fee parking in BART lots will be free and
no validation will be required on June 19, but
all reserved/permit parking regulations and
other parking regulations will be enforced. All
other BART rules will also be in effect, includ-
ing no eating or drinking. Bike rules will be
enforced, as well.
To protect public health, the Air District will
continue to issue Spare the Air advisories
when ozone levels are expected to exceed fed-
eral guidelines. There will not be free transit
on those days, however.
So spare the air and walk, bike, or take the
bus to BART on Thursday, June 19!
Join BART in celebrating the third annual
national Dump the Pump Day, Thursday,
Dump the Pump Day is dedicated to raising
awareness that public transportation helps
improve the environment and conserve
fuel. It’s a great way to beat the high price of
gasoline and support public transportation,
helping reduce our dependence on foreign
oil. Each year, public transportation use in
the U.S. saves 1.4 billion gallons of gasoline.
This represents almost 4 million gallons of
gasoline per day.
Tell your friends to park their cars on June
19 and give BART a try instead!
