BART adjusts schedule as new Milpitas, Berryessa stations set to open

Starting Monday, BART will be running on a schedule adjusted for next weekend’s openings of its Milpitas and Berryessa stations.

The two stations, opening Saturday, June 13, will mean 13 added minutes of travel time on the Daly City – Berryessa (Green) and Richmond – Berryessa (Orange) lines, BART officials said.

BART BART is adjusting their schedule to accommodate the new Berryessa and Milpitas stations opening June 13, 2020.

Funds for the project came from Santa Clara County’s Measure A in 2000; the California Traffic Congestion Relief Program and the Federal Transit Administration New Starts Program

The Milpitas station is located at 1755 S. Milpitas Blvd. and the Berryessa/North San Jose Station is 925 Berryessa Station Way.

Both stations will include direct VTA bus connection service, drop-off and pick-up areas for pedestrians and shuttles, bicycle storage and public areas to allow people to meet with each other near each station. The

Milpitas station will also include a direct connection to VTA’s Milpitas light-rail station.

With BART service reduced during shelter-in-place orders, the hours of operation are 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekends.
