The BART Widget

Ride that train, baby.

A trip planner for the BART train system in the northern California bay area.

Instructions for use:

  1. Open dashboard.
  2. See when the next train is coming.
  3. Enjoy your smog-free public transportation.

Advanced use:

  • Drag baubles on a map to set your route.
  • Click the clock to set the date and time. (You can also drag the display or mousewheel.)
  • Click the heart to bookmark your route.
  • Click the speaker for voice announcements.

No network connection is required. The BART widget is a free, self-contained trip planner that you can take with you.
