5 minutes Date Enacted: Feb 28, 2016
BART’s current Access Policy was adopted by the District’s Board of Directors in 2000 (see Figure 1). Since the policy was adopted, there have been many important changes within the agency and in the region. BART seeks to develop a revised Access Policy that can serve the following purposes:
Help guide Planning, Property Development, and Customer Access staff decision-making on a day-to-day basis
Act as a statement of values, linking access to the larger strategic plan framework
Help guide investment decisions, answering key questions such as: With high demand and scarce resources, how does BART prioritize access investments?
Define performance measures, helping answer key questions such as: How does BART know if its access investments are successful? How does BART know if it needs to improve?
