BART will begin holding public meetings next month to discuss upcoming changes to its 9 political districts.
BART is one of the few transit agencies in the country to have a publicly elected board of directors, each of whom represents a specific district in the Bay Area. Three of those members — Tom Radulovich, James Fang and Lynette Sweet — represent portions of San Francisco.
As made mandatory following each federal census, the 9 BART districts are subject to changes to reflect updated population and demographic trends. Next month, BART will hold three meetings in San Francisco to discuss how those changes might affect the geography of BART’s local elected districts.
The meetings are scheduled for Oct. 4, 11, and 12 in the Chinatown, Mission district and Bayview neighborhoods.
