Memorial Day weekend is a time to reflect and honor the brave women and men who have fought and died for our freedoms in this country. This weekend also marks the unofficial start to summer and with it, the commencement of outdoor get-togethers with family and friends. Whether you take time to honor and observe the memory of a loved one, safely get together with loved ones or stay in over this weekend, we have a few things to offer for inside and outside. Whatever you do, we wish you a happy and healthy one!
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.
