OAKLAND . (AP) — More and longer BART trains are coming to San Francisco in the fall.
The Oakland Tribune reports Friday that BART directors passed the transit district’s $1.6 billion budget Thursday.
Ridership is up and the agency voted to spend money to increase train passenger capacity and to improve on-time performance, the newspaper reported.

The budget funds changes to produce 30 more train cars in service during peak periods and adds 16 train trips each weekday. Agency officials say each line will see improved service starting in September.
