Parsons to continue delivering engineering services to BART up to 2028
Parsons Corporation was selected by Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to continue delivering general engineering services (GES) to the transit agency through 2028.
The five-year, $40 million task order contract is the fourth consecutive GES contract Parsons has won with BART and may include projects such as:
- Strategic planning to convert portions of non-revenue fleet to zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs),
- Support for capital programs, track and civil design, traction power engineering, structural and geotechnical design, and fiber optic upgrades.
Parsons has supported BART for more than 30 years and is currently providing design services during implementation of a communications-based train control (CBTC) system. The CBTC system, which will be the largest deployed in North America when complete, includes replacing the automatic train control system on 125 miles of track to improve passenger carrying capacity, provide a state of good repair, and deliver a safer, more efficient transit system.
