metropolitan transportation commission. >> if i were to envision bart 25 and 50 years from now, i think it is a safe bet that bart will pretty much be the same institution it is in 25 years to what it is today. stephanie: he points to significant long-term investments. the transit system is about to get an entirely new fleet of trains. >> we have about 700 vehicles either on their way or in service, and over the next 10 years, another several hundred to 1000 will be here. stephanie: the replacements cost $1 million, so the incoming trains will equal a $1 billion investment over the next decade. > we aren't going to waste that investment. stephanie: while bart is here to stay, it's future will look different. there are plans for a more seamless experience that adapts to new innovations like smart cars and autonomous vehicles, making it easier for riders to

4:34 pm
systems are struggling to recover. stephanie: where does that leave bart's future? will the future compete with the past? >> i do think we have to be mindful that it will not be what it was before. stephanie: new innovations will offer convenient alternatives and may take dominance over bart. >> within 5-10 years, it could be commonplace where you take your app out and are taking a bus, and then you are getting in a car for another part of your trip. stephanie: the only competition is the price. the average ticket fair on bart is $3.78. for a car, the pricing will be in the ballpark of uber or lift. for some consumers, the convenience may be worth the price. the question is, will we need our in the same way? >> if they are going to survive, they need to become transit
