- One click to find out.
BART delay making us late?

Art of BART is not affiliated with BART. This app uses an API generously provided by BART for use freely by the public and interested developers.
Sometimes, there are problems with the BART API. And sometimes there are issues with your mobile device's access to the internet. These issues could prevent Art of BART from working properly.
I'm not responsible for those problems, and unfortunately there's nothing I can do about them.
However, I use Art of BART every day, and my experience is that those problems are rare, and that they affect every BART App on the market, for the same reasons.
So please consider this when sending feedback or rating Art of BART. And let me know if there are any other ways I can improve this app. Thank you!
