BART to get millions for security upgrades

Bay Area Rapid Transit riders couldsee millions of dollars in security upgrades once officials announce the plans for BART's portion of a $19.9 billion statewide bond measure.

BART officials this morning are announcing how many millions of dollars BART will receive of a $19.9 billion bond measure and how the money will be used, according to BART spokesman Linton Johnson.

The money results from Proposition 1B, which passed in November 2006, according to BART officials.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's Office of Homeland Security will hand BART officials a giant mock check representing the millions of dollars BART is to receive, officials said.

A news conference will ensue following the check's presentation at 10 a.m. at Powell Street BART Station, 899 Market St., San Francisco, according to BART officials.
