area rapid transit system was an ambitious goal to create a next generation network 68 years after new york subway system was launched while september 11. 1972 was a true milestone the achievement was hardly easy. groundbreaking was eight years earlier in 1964 that the initial concept to link the region's nine counties had its roots in a 1947 army navy study that promoted a transbay tube details are included in a book on bart's history written by retired public affairs director, mike healy. they were concerned that if the bridge were knocked out for some reason during a war time. they would need a way to move troops back and forth and they felt an underwater too would be the answer to that between east bay and west bay voters in san francisco, alameda and for costume counties in 1962 approved a 792 million dollar
bond measure to create bart even though marin and san mateo counties had pulled out over cost santa clara county pre-tech boom didn't see the need in the case of marin. there was no interest in building a second deck on the golden gate bridge for the bart trains, technically the vote for the bart bond failed to win by the required margin in contra. costa state lawmakers intervened to keep the plan from being derailed the state legislature passed a bill that allowed them to average out the votes between the three counties have they not done that then it would have been the two counties trying to carry it and it wouldn't have happened. inaugural service was east bay only running between macarthur station and oakland and fremont. it was really probably one of the most exciting days not only for all of us that were working at bart of the time but also for the bay area reaction it was positive from passengers. it reminds me in new york when i was living there. this is like a 747 the wide
fabric covered seats big future windows the promise of a seat for everyone and speed up to 80 miles an hour. we're designed to lure commuters out of their cars and alleviate traffic congestion residents endured years of construction as cruz dug up streets for underground tracks and stations complicated by high water tables and tangled utility lines elsewhere bart was able to use freeway medians and to build aerial tracks. there were technical issues too bart's vision was to create a space-age system with automatic train control with manual operation only in an emergency situation. however, the collision avoidance system worked only 99% of the time unacceptable to state reg. there was no model for it as healy pointed out this being the first new mass transit system to be built in nearly 70 years delays caused by that budget overruns and inflation also pose challenges it took another two years to open the transbay tube to bring trains to san francisco
in eight minutes the twin board tunnel consisted of 57 sections that had to be lowered into a trench dug along the floor of the bay and a cross of an additional 133 million dollars on september 16th 1974. this reporter was on hand for the first day of transmission service a computer error and some patrons baffle electronic signs told daily city riders. the train was bound for pleasant hill. spite of glitches like that barbara was uncompromising in terms of creating a best-in-class system using steel wheels not rubber ones for better traction using a wider than typical track gauge for stability from high winds and relying on light weight aluminum train bodies to reduce breaking and accelerating times. mike healy is convinced. there was only a narrow window to hatch bart and it's a business and political support taxpayer dollars and a strong vision to make it happen. not pass that bond issue 792 million dollars build the basic system.
you wouldn't have a bar today 50 years later is noteworthy that some of the original 1972 trains are still in service. although they're quickly being replaced by newer cars also no worthy the original manufacturer or industries of southern california was an aerospace company and had never before made a mass transit train in fremont david bowie, abc7 news. after the break thousands pay their final respects to queen elizabeth in scotland. we'll show you the royal procession and have more on what happens next ahead of her funeral in london.

park chris philippi with bart says the new schedules will see trains better space apart on evenings and weekends to serve late night workers and those attending events the schedule also adds trains earlier in the morning and adjust for track maintenance in the trans bay tube. it also sees bart moving to one standard five-lane weekend schedule for both saturday and sunday. you're used to catching a train at 11:15 on a saturday. you can now plan on catching that train at 11:15 on sunday. it's a layer of consistency that we've added bar ridership took a massive hit in the pandemic and still several years later. they're to make up for those losses. they hope that with this new schedule it will entice people that this is once again a convenient transit option if we can offer a train when people want it and offered consistently at the same time past each hour all throughout the week. that's the sort of consistency that people can plan on it makes their lives easier part of that convenience comes with timing trains with other agencies caltrain also changed their
schedule now riders will only have to wait between 9 to 16 minutes to catch a connection between bart and caltrain and middlebury station. we have a lot of people who go between both part and caltrain or caltrain bart. so, you know, we're trying to tighten that up as much as possible the more we can shrink those wait times the easier for people to move from one system to another this new schedule makes it more convenient for caltrain riders while also allowing them to finish their electrification project on time. this schedule does leave room for single tracking which does allow for allow construction to continue on the electrification project while we continue to provide service. ryan curry abc 7 news now as we told you a few minutes ago, this comes as bart celebrates 50 years of service abc 7 news is taking a look at the past present and future of the bay area's biggest transit system a few minutes ago. we looked at the past now, let's take a look at the present which may be the most challenging time that the agency has ever faced abc 7 news item reporter melanie woodrow dug into the data and has the story.
two years into the pandemic bart ridership is only at 38% of pre-pandemic levels. according to a bart spokesperson. clearly the weekday ridership is not recovering as quickly as we would like part spokesperson. jim ellison says weekend ridership is recovering a bit more quickly at 50 to 60 percent of prepandemic levels, but he says it's still not enough to sustain the budget the abc 7 news data team analyzed bart data from before the pandemic in january of 2019 through july of 2022. you can see total ridership drastically decreased with total station exit dropping from more than 10 million in july of 2019 to more than one million in july of 2020 in july of 2022 total station exits had only rebounded to more than three million is bart ever gonna get back to those numbers that it saw pre-pandemic. well certainly the remote work model has really changed a lot of the dynamics for us the biggest factor in our ridership
is office occupancy prior to the pandemic in july of 2019 embarcadero and montgomery street, where the two stations with the largest number of exits in july. 2022 that was still true, however, the total station exits were significantly lower at each embarcadero total station exits were approximately 71% lower and montgomery street total station exits were approximately 75% lower embarcadero and montgomery street heavily relied on people who worked in the financial district ellison says bart needs to work on attracting those riders when they are commuting to the office the transit system surveyed customers the number one reason for decreased ridership according to allison working from home the number two reason offered much less frequently fear of covid-19. exposure. alison says bart is safer than ever with filters on trains and more uniformed safety staff still rider projections. remain bleak. we're not really expecting to see full ridership recovery within the near time frame. he says maybe only 50 to 60% of
prepandemic levels by july of 2024. what does that mean for bart's bottom line the federal financial? funding that we're getting is keeping us afloat. and so those funds have been a lifeline for us. but the projections are that we would begin running a deficit in january of 2026. alison says bart's budget needs to be balanced the transit system can't run a deficit and 2025 seems to be the end of the track. we're just gonna have to readjust the budget as we get closer to the end of that fiscal runway along with those adjustments campaigns to encourage seasoned riders to return a new ones to give bart a try fart is currently offering 50% off the entire month of september in celebration of its 50th anniversary for the it melanie woodrow abc 7 news. if you're interested in streaming us right now stay right here coming up next to 10 our latest abc 7 special bart 50
