General Manager relaunches rider listening tour

BART General Manager Bob Powers is relaunching his listening tour with a focus on visiting the current top 10 ridership BART stations to hear from riders who have been with us throughout the pandemic and those who are new or are now just returning. 

“Meeting riders at our stations helps me learn if we’re meeting their needs,” said Powers. “It’s also invaluable for me to see first-hand how we’re doing with safety staffing, cleanliness, public address announcements and even if people are complying with the face covering requirement.”
