Visit BART's future seat lab


With some of the oldest subway trains in the country, BART is looking for your opinion on how to make the next generation of train cars better suit riders in the 21st Century. The traveling future seat lab will make nine stops, one in each BART district, and everyone is welcome to give their thoughts on the possible future cars.

  • What kinds of seats would you like to see on new BART train cars?
  • How can BART best accommodate customers using wheelchairs?
  • How can BART best accommodate customers using bicycles or strollers or carrying luggage?
  • What types of passenger information should the new cars provide in their on-board displays?
  • What features do you most like or dislike about trains you’ve used in other cities?
