We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the out-of-service escalators at Balboa Park station. We will have to perform a complete rebuild the main drive gears for both escalators, which is a very involved and extensive scope of work. We are projecting completion in September.
We recognize the great inconvenience this will cause you. We hope that once this work is complete, it will result in many more years of trouble-free operation.
People who rely on the escalator will have to use the elevator to get to their destination. To check the operational status of the elevator before arriving at the station, please call 510-834-LIFT or 888-2-ELEVAT.
If you need language assistance services, please call BART’s Transit Information Center at (510) 465-2278.
