Shared Autonomous Vehicle Pilot Program

CCTA and BART are committed to facilitating access to transit through voter-approved Measure J programs designed to improve BART parking and station access. The project will enable CCTA and BART to test the capabilities of shared autonomous vehicles (SAV) in addressing challenges associated with increased BART parking demand and limited first/last mile connections. The SAVs planned for use during the test period are low-speed, multipassenger, electric vehicles. BART will provide input during the test phase at GoMentum Station, in Concord, and the public  demonstration at a private business park in Contra Costa. If successful, BART will have the option of building upon this initial test period to implement a pilot program utilizing SAVs at a central county BART station, which would be the first program of its kind in the country.
