BART – Bay Area Rapid Transit

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a rapid transit system serving the San Francisco Bay Area. The heavy-rail public transit and subway system connects San Francisco with cities in the East Bay and suburbs in San Mateo County. BART operates five lines on 104 miles of track, with 44 stations in four counties. With an average weekday ridership of 379,300 passengers, BART is the fifth busiest heavy rail rapid transit system in the United States.

In the event of an earthquake or other circumstances causing a power failure, BART has a battery backup system in each of its 44 stations. BART uses Global Energy Innovations’ EC2000™ to monitor the health of these mission critical battery backup systems. This ensures that important computers and routing equipment are unaffected, and can be safely shut down and resume service when power is restored.
