BART Ad Hoc This advocacy group focuses on bringing BART to the South Bay. The linking of San Jose to the East Bay and San Francisco through the BART system will vastly affect our city and region. The main downtown station around Santa Clara and Market streets will see the most public use. A project of this importance and magnitude requires a “Grand Central Station,” the signature station along the entire line. The committee also advocates to minimize the impact of BART on downtown business. Meets as needed.
