Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) riders should be ready for some possible service slowdowns on December 2 and 3 due to tree removal work between Daly City and Glen Park BART stations. CalTrans, as announced on the City of Daly City's website, is gearing up for this operation to prevent potential disruptions caused by severe weather that could knock trees onto the tracks. Commuters should brace for up to 30-minute delays.

This maintenance work aims to safeguard the system from the impact of weather conditions. Riders in the affected stretch between Glen Park and Daly City will need to adjust their plans, as a free shuttle service will be in place, though it might not be the ideal weekend plan for everyone. In case of bad weather, the tree removal activity will be rescheduled to the following weekend, December 9 and 10. BART's Alerts and Advisories page will provide the latest updates for passengers.

The impact of the tree removal won't just be felt by riders. Locals in the vicinity can expect some activity. The streets will see construction vehicles and the usual noise that comes with heavy-duty landscape management. However, the good news is that all equipment will be gone once the weekend work concludes on Sunday, according to Daly City's official announcement.

For those seeking more information or with questions about the weekend work, BART has set up an email line at [email protected] and a phone number at (510) 464-7264. There's also a dedicated assistance line at (855) 880-8526 for those who might need help in languages other than English, ensuring no one is left confused.
