It was a glimpse into the future of BART: its new, New Zealand-designed 40-mile an hour cable car that’ll zip riders to the Oakland Airport.
About 35 McClymonds’ STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) students were treated to a behind-the scenes tour of BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), along with a cameo on local TV news Tuesday.
“We learned how trains function and all the careers associated with BART,” said junior Kardel Howard.
The trip was organized by BART and Kathryn Hall, who heads the STEM program at McClymonds.
