BART to host online town hall Tuesday to answer questions about transbay shutdown

Got questions about our planned Transbay Tube closure? BART officials will host a live online town hall meeting from Noon-1pm on Tuesday, July 28th to answer questions about the work taking place the first weekend in August and during Labor Day weekend to repair a critical section of track near the Transbay Tube.  BART officials from Operations and Maintenance and Engineering will take questions that have been emailed or tweeted in before and during the webcast.

Riders can ask questions about how the lifeline bus service will work, the closure of the West Oakland Station, what it means for the rest of the system, details about the work being performed and why it’s important, and any other related question.
