MacArthur before it was MacArthur BART

timelinecropToday, MacArthur BART is a transfer hub for three of the five lines in the BART system. People who knew the MacArthur BARthood before BART went in, say this area has always been a transit hub. Before BART there was AC Transit, before AC Transit there was the Key System. Today, Kiran Goldman and I interviewed Bill Jackson, who owns Lee’s Auto Laundry Detail. Jackson’s family has owned the business, located today just behind the BART parking lot, since the 1940s. His views on the MacArthur BARThood and a transit village proposed for the station will appear in a video for our News 21 project. –Elizabeth Shemaria
