Labor Day transit guide: Extra-long BART closure, parking meters, fewer ferry and Muni runs

Those lounging this Labor Day weekend will be in luck, as the holiday will see regional transit agencies reduce service between Saturday and Monday.

BART’s weekend closure between the Glen Park and Daly City stations will last through Monday, according to the agency. Those closures will see the installation of specialty track clamps to reduce noise for riders.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency will provide a free local shuttle for the three stations affected by the BART stoppage: Glen Park, Balboa Park and Daly City.

On Monday, all Muni lines will run on a Sunday schedule, and residential parking permits and Monday-through-Friday daytime street sweeping, as well as commuter towaways, will not be enforced Monday, according to the SFMTA.

But weeklong nighttime street sweeping will be enforced Monday, as will parking meters.

Golden Gate Transit bus service will operate on a reduced Sunday schedule on Monday, as will the Golden Gate Larkspur Ferry, according to the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District.

The district will provide added service for the weekend’s Sausalito Art Festival on the Golden Gate-Sausalito ferry.

The district will close both parking lots for personal autos at both ends of the Golden Gate Bridge between Friday and Monday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Welcome Center parking lot on the south end of the bridge and Vista Point parking lot at the north end will still be accessible by buses, shuttles, taxis and ride-hails such as Uber and Lyft, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The closures are part of an effort to “mitigate the significant traffic backups” frequently seen on busy weekends as visitors line up to park at the bridge on holidays, according to the CHP.
