SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – APRIL 08: A Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) passenger adjusts his protective mask as a train pulls into the Balboa Park station on April 08, 2020 in San Francisco, California.

As of right now it is mandatory that BART riders wear a face mask while riding on the trains and as they wait on the platforms.
Some riders may not have access to a face mask, or were in a rush and could have forgotten theirs at home. Luckily BART will be placing new face mask vending machines at their stations.
BART wants their passengers to be safe while traveling and are expecting face masks to be a requirement for a long time.
There is no set date to when the vending machines will be open and ready to go, but we will be sure to update you when they are.
