VTA's BART Berryessa Extension Project Reminder: Stay Safe - Don't Touch the Third Rail!
We understand that the community is concerned about the current public health emergency and how important it is to keep everyone safe. With school out of session, and many of us trying to get at least a little fresh air outside, please remind your family and community about the need to stay safe near the BART trackway. As work continues to prepare VTA’s BART Berryessa Extension for service, the public may see additional trains on the trackway.
VTA wants to remind the public that the third rail is energized and touching the third rail can result in death by electrocution. Trespassing onto the track is not only illegal, it is dangerous. Please keep yourself safe.
While VTA is working with BART on completing train and system testing, the Berryessa extension tracks and substations are powered on. This testing should be complete in the coming months, with service beginning soon after. We anticipate more information being available in April.
