Broken down escalators at BART stations are all too common in downtown San Francisco, and BART is addressing the situation by replacing some of the worst-performing escalators in the city. The plan also includes the addition of canopies at the Powell and Civic Center stations in its first phase, which will be implemented by 2017. Eventually, canopies will also be built at the Montgomery and Embarcadero stations. The canopies will include artwork on their ceilings, and BART is currently in the process of developing an art policy to determine a budget for art and a process for artists to submit their work. []
