• Carry cash or a pre-loaded Clip­per card to board early morn­ing buses. You won’t be able to use one of BART’s pa­per tick­ets on the early morn­ing buses.

• Down­load the BART (Of­fi­cial) app for An­droid of iOS or book­mark www.BART. Gov/Plan­ner on your desk­top to plan your trip.

• It’d prob­a­bly be help­ful to use the app or desk­top trip plan­ner ev­ery time you ride, but it’ll be es­sen­tial on Sun­days. BART plans to up­grade its elec­tri­cal power sta­tion in down­town San Fran­cisco, mean­ing it will be sin­gle-track­ing through the area on some Sun­days. For the most part, only An­ti­och/Mill­brae trains will pro­vide ser­vice through the tube, but there might also be di­rect Daly City/Warm Springs and Daly City/Richmond trains, de­pend­ing on when and where crews are work­ing.

• On Sun­day, Dublin/Pleasan­ton trains will op­er­ate be­tween Dublin/Pleasan­ton and MacArthur and all Mill­brae rid­ers must trans­fer to a San Fran­cisco/An­ti­och train at SFO.

• When: 3:50 a.m. and 5:30 a.m.

• Where: The Early Bird Bus ser­vice in­cludes 15new bus lines that will run in both di­rec­tions be­tween stops. There will be seven trans­bay bus routes, five for des­ti­na­tions in the East Bay, two for stops in San Fran­cisco and the Penin­sula, and one for Con­tra Costa County. The bus will serve 21BART sta­tions and the Tem­po­rary Trans­bay Ter­mi­nal in San Fran­cisco.

• How much: Fares will the be as much or less than a BART ticket.

• How to pay: Cash or Clip­per card. No pa­per BART tick­ets will be valid.

• For Golden Gate Tran­sit pas­sen­gers only: You must tag on and off, like on BART, or you will charged the max­i­mum fare. For all other op­er­a­tors, pas­sen­gers need only to tag on.

• Park­ing: You can con­tinue to use BART’s lots to park, but you must pay for park­ing on the BART (Of­fi­cial) app. You won’t be able to en­ter the sta­tion and pay for park­ing like you do now. If you don’t have a smart­phone, you can also visit www. Se­lect-A-Spot.com/BART on your desk­top to pay for a park­ing spot. You’ll have to print out the tag and place it on your dash. Or, if you want to pay in cash, you can pur­chase one-day hang tags in per­son at the cus­tomer ser­vice cen­ters at Lake Mer­ritt or Em­bar­cadero. Scratch the date you want and hang it on your rear-view mir­ror or place it on your dash­board. Al­ways park in the fee area of the lot.

• More in­for­ma­tion: De­tailed in­for­ma­tion on spe­cific sta­tions can be found at www. BART.Gov/Sched­ules/Early­Bird-Ex­press.
