PASSENGER LOADING TO MOVE INTO GARAGE ON FIRST FLOOR & SHUTTLE BUS STOPS MOVING AT MILLBRAE STATION

  

On Monday, 5/18/2020, the Millbrae Station’s east side Passenger Loading Zone will be moved to its new permanent location on the 1st floor of the garage. Access to the rest of the garage parking will be the same as before. 


Shuttle bus stops will move to Rollins Road. Please see the above map for more details.


The new loading zone will be protected from weather and will feature better lighting and separate zones for active passenger loading, ride apps, taxis, and 15-minute waiting spaces. 


The old loading zone will be permanently closed for the Gateway at Millbrae Station project which is part of the BART's initiative to encourage Transit Oriented Development (TOD), and will include housing, retail, and dining opportunities. A portion of the housing will be affordable and is prioritized for veterans.

POWER OFF IN GARAGE AT MILLBRAE STATION FOR ONE WEEK. There will be no elevator service during daylight hours only.


To protect workers, it is necessary to turn off the power in the garage at Millbrae Station. The shutoffs will begin Monday, 4/6 and continue through 4/10. 


  • The shutoff will only happen during daylight hours (approximately 7:00am to 4:00pm), so there will be lights and elevator service inside the garage at night.


  • Contractors will be working on the new passenger pick-up/drop-off area on the first floor. This work could leave the workers exposed to live electrical lines if the power is not off.


  • Garage elevators will not operate during the power shutoff. If you typically need to use the elevator, please park on the 4th floor of the garage so you can use the connecting walkway to access the station. ADA spaces are available on the 4th floor.


  • In addition, the first floor is closed to all access for now, however you are still able to access the other garage floors from the first-floor ramps.


We thank you for your patience during this power shutoff.

Update: 3/19/20

On Monday, March 23, 2020, the Gateway at Millbrae Station project will close all remaining surface parking lots. All areas will be signed at least 72 hours in advance of closures.


  • The parking garage will remain open during all phases of construction; however, a portion of the 1st floor of the garage is closed for construction of a new Passenger Loading area. 


  • There will be limited times when the entire first floor will need to be closed. Drivers will still be able to access the rest of the garage when that happens. The new Passenger Loading area will open in late April/early May.


What to Expect: 


All remaining surface parking lots (phase 5) will be closed permanently. 


Because there will be fewer parking spaces at the station, we have taken steps to make sure most BART customers will still be able to find a space: 


  • The parking garage has been restriped to create additional spaces.


  • A carpool feature has been added to the Official BART App to encourage carpools to the station. 


Update: 2/26/20

Periodic lane reductions along Rollins Road* between the BART parking garage and Millbrae Ave. 


When: 01/26/20- 06/15/22 


Vehicular access will be maintained during the periodic lane reductions along Rollins Road; however, traffic delays may occur. 


  • An alternative route to Millbrae Avenue is available for cars exiting the station via Camino Milennia or the 2nd floor of the parking garage. 


  • Drivers are encouraged to use South Station Road, to Adrian Road to Rollins Road (see Alternative map below). 


Please follow the posted traffic detour signs along the designated alternative route at all times. U-Turns are prohibited. 


*Bicycle, pedestrian and emergency vehicle access will be maintained throughout construction. 

Update: 2/8/20

On Saturday, February 22, 2020, the Gateway at Millbrae Station project will close the southwest portion of the surface parking lot located between the Station and Rollins Road to prepare for construction. 


All areas will be signed at least 72 hours in advance of closures.


The parking garage will remain open during all phases of construction; however, a portion of the 1st floor of the garage will also be closed on February 29, 2020 to begin construction of a new Passenger Loading area. 


The new Passenger Loading area will open late March.

Update: 1/11/20

The parking garage will remain open during all phases of construction; however, a portion of the 1st floor of the garage will be closed to begin construction of a new Passenger Loading area. 

Update:12/2/19

A large Transit-oriented Development (TOD) project will soon start construction on the surface lots at Millbrae Station. Almost all surface parking will be closed. 300 spaces will return at the end of construction. 


  • The first work, on weekends (Thursday night through early Monday) in December and January, is restriping the spaces inside the parking garage to increase the number of spaces.


  • ADA spaces will not close until Friday nights. 


  • The work will be done floor by floor. 


  • Tow Away signs will be posted in the spaces 72 hours before work begins on each floor. 


Once the re-striping is finished, the western side of the first floor will be permanently closed to parking as we relocate the outside loading zone (passenger pick-up/drop-off and shuttles) into the garage. 


Monthly permit areas will be affected by the restriping. Please make note of the closure signs and, when the 4th floor is closed, park in Permit stalls on the 3rd floor and when the 3rd floor is closed, use the 4th floor.
