BARTable This Weekend: March 5-7

This weekend the weather is forecast to be cool and may bring some rain to our days. If virtual is the way the go because of that, we’ve got you covered. If getting outside is still in the cards, try heading to a farmer’s market or hit one of the restaurants re-opening with limited capacity from the lifting of tiers in some Bay Area counties. Whatever card you pick, may it be an ace of a weekend!

Editor's Note: Please wear a mask and keep a physical distance of at least six feet while riding the trains or at an in-person event. Before you travel on BART, use our Trip Planner to get estimated arrival and departure times. See BART's 15-step plan to safely welcome back riders here.
