BART seeking to improve outreach efforts with minority communities 

BART will meet with a series of minority groups in San Francisco and San Mateo counties over the next month to discuss ways in which it can reach out better to underrepresented communities.

The transit agency intends on making policy changes about how it communicates with minority populations on issues such as fare increases, service changes and other major transportation proposals. BART recently lost $70 million in federal funding for a connecting line to the Oakland International Airport because it failed to conduct proper outreach within the neighboring community.

The first of six planned outreach meetings in San Francisco and the Peninsula will take place on Wednesday, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., on the eighth floor of the Cova Hotel at 655 Ellis St. in San Francisco. Additional meetings are scheduled in the Chinatown, Bayview, Mission and Excelsior neighborhoods in San Francisco, as well as another hearing in San Bruno.
