BART has prioritized three interrelated capital investment initiatives to ensure the system can safely, efficiently, and comfortably serve current and new riders, as part of its Fleet of the Future program; The Hayward Maintenance Complex (HMC) will ensure that BART’s maintenance and repair capacity is sufficient to support the new railcar fleet for both the current system and system expansions. This new maintenance facility will maintain and store the expanded fleet. HMC will cost approximately $432 million, and a funding plan has been developed by BART and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission to cover the full project cost. Creation of the HMC is jointly supported by BART and the Santa Clara Valley Transit Authority (VTA).
