Major escalator repair at Embarcadero Station begins 10/9/17
On October 9, 2017 we are removing from service the street-level escalator on the north side of Market between Davis and Drumm streets at Embarcadero Station. This is a major repair project that will replace the escalator controller unit with a new solid-state unit along with other repairs.
This is the second escalator taken out of service at this station for this work. The first will be returned to service soon. This escalator will be out of service for 12 weeks, until approximately the middle of January 2018.
BART will perform the same work on twelve escalators at the following stations over the course of two years: Embarcadero, Montgomery, 16th and 24th Mission stations. The work being done involves major electrical system overhaul of existing escalators that continue to malfunction. This repair work is expected to be complete by 2018 and will result in more reliable escalators and access.

We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your patience.
