(BART news release)

The BART Board of Directors voted to move forward with a pilot project to install a canopy enclosure over the street level escalator entrance to 19th Street Station in downtown Oakland.

Installing a canopy will not only protect the escalator, but will improve passenger and employee safety.

The canopy provides better lighting at the entrance, the addition of security cameras and a way to close off the escalator stairwell when a station is closed.

If successful, the canopy project could be extended to other BART stations with street level escalators. – See more at:
