BART will operate on a Sunday schedule on the Independence Day holiday, Wednesday, July 4, 2012, with service beginning around 8 am. BART also will run longer trains and add special event trains as needed to accommodate riders attending the fireworks display at San Francisco's Pier 39.
The largest crowds of fireworks-viewers are expected to be using Embarcadero Station. The fireworks over Pier 39 are scheduled to begin around 9:30 pm.
There will also be longer trains to serve fans attending the Oakland A's vs. Boston Red Sox game at 1:05 pm at the Oakland Coliseum on July 4.
Riders are encouraged to buy a roundtrip ticket to avoid lines at ticket machines after events, or to use a Clipper card to avoid ticket machines altogether. Plan your trip using the BART QuickPlanner or check our real-time departures info.
