Bay Area Rapid Transit

Jump to navigation Jump to search

BART is a rapid transit system serving the San Francisco Bay Area: eight routes on 131 miles (210 km) of track with 50 stations (21 surface, 14 elevated, 15 subway) in five counties. Systemwide, there are approximately 32 miles (51 km) of aerial track; 70 miles (115 km) of track at grade and about 28 miles (45 km) of subway track. Most BART infrastructure is FTA-defined "heavy rail" tagged railway=subway, so BART is in California/Railroads' "Commuter" (passenger=suburban) section, as BART's systemwide geographic span is similar to other Commuter rail networks in California, including BART's newer infrastructure like Coliseum – Oakland International Airport (railway=monorail) line and BART to Antioch extension (railway=light_rail). All lines are tagged network=BART and the network-wide relation is relation 8477436.

BART Silicon Valley Phase II Extension Project intends to complete in 2030, adding four new stations to the Green and Orange lines: 28th Street / Little Portugal, Downtown San José, Diridon and Santa Clara in a largely subway alignment, achieving (with Caltrain correspondences at Diridon and Santa Clara) frequent Bay Area rail service that "rings the bay."

Tagging Conventions

Please follow rules on the newer public transport version 2 tagging conventions.

Route Master Relation

Key Value Comment Recommendation
type route_master - mandatory
route subway, monorail, light_rail BART=subway or Oakland Airport Connector=monorail or BART to Antioch extension=light_rail mandatory
name Line name For example: Dublin/Pleasanton - Daly City Line mandatory
operator San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District - mandatory
network BART - mandatory
colour Color The color used on BART maps recommended

These relations should have a member for each "normal" direction the line follows:

Element Role Recurrence? Description
relation none two or more type=route for each "normal" direction of the line, but excluding short turns when vehicles enter/leave service.

Route Relation

Key Value Comment Recommendation
type route - mandatory
route subway, monorail, light_rail Exactly as for the associated route master: BART=subway or Oakland Airport Connector=monorail or BART to Antioch extension=light_rail mandatory
name Destination Station For example: Richmond, Millbrae, Dublin/Pleasanton mandatory
from Name of start terminal - mandatory
to Name of destination terminal - mandatory
via Name of major intermediate stop - recommended
description Short description or route Any major stations or stops along route recommended
operator San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District - mandatory
network BART - mandatory
colour Color Exactly as on the associated route master (duplicated for renderers that don't yet support route masters) recommended

These relations should have a member for each way and stop that participates in this direction of service:

Element Role Recurrence? Description
way none one or more the railways that are traversed in this direction of service, in the order they are traversed.
node stop one or more the stations (public_transport=stop_position + subway=yes +name=*) on the way

Stations

Each station is represented by several nodes/ways collected into a stop_area relation.

Key Value Comment Recommendation
type public_transport - mandatory
public_transport stop_area - mandatory
name Name of the station For example: Lake Merritt mandatory
network BART - mandatory
operator San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District - mandatory
subway, monorail, light_rail yes The mode(s) that serve the station optional

Each station should have at a minimum:

Element Role Recurrence? Description
nodeway none one A single member representing the station as a whole, usually a node placed at the center of the station (see below)
node stop one or more public_transport=stop_position + subway=yes/monorail=yes/light_rail=yes on the tracks
way platform one or more public_transport=platform + subway=yes/monorail=yes/light_rail=yes next to the tracks
node none one or more railway=subway_entrance for each station entrance

Each relation has a single member tagged with public_transport=station that includes most of the infomation specific to the station as a whole.

Key Value Comment Recommendation
public_transport station - mandatory
subway, monorail, light_rail yes The mode(s) that serve the station. At Millbrae, a different station co-located 25 meters away tagged train=yes represents an intermodal correspondence with Caltrain. mandatory
name Name of the station For example: Lake Merritt mandatory
alt_name Other common names Some stations use different spellings on signs inside and outside the stations, on maps, and on schedules. Include them here. recommended
network BART - mandatory
operator San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District - mandatory
railway station - mandatory
station subway, monorail, light_rail Most BART stations are subway; the Oakland Airport Connector is monorail, and the Antioch extension is light_rail mandatory
toilets yes, no - recommended
wheelchair yes, limited All BART stations should be wheelchair accessible recommended

Routes

(Note: BART is currently operating on a somewhat different route pattern than normal due to construction on the Transbay Tube. The routes currently mapped represent the current service pattern, whereas the table below represents the normal service pattern and is out of date.)
