I just wanted to share the following information which was shared with me by the chapter's contact with the Apple Store.
This will effect where you exit the BART station, and I will research other options.
I however do hope that we will see you for the apple accessibility event at the apple store, San Francisco at Stockton and Ellis on May 24 currently scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
Please be in touch with me if you plan on attending.
Stockton and Ellis entrance at Powell Street Station closed for Central Subway work
The Stockton and Ellis Street BART entrance (otherwise known as the “Apple Store” entrance) has been closed.
The closure is necessary as the City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) begin construction work on the Union Square/Market Street Station for the Central Subway.
The entrance will be closed for approximately six years. SFMTA plans to re-open the entrance with the opening of the new Union Square/Market Street Station. There is an elevator available near this entrance which goes to street level and will still be in operation. The other nearest entrance/exit is at Market and 4th Streets.
Please download the passenger bulletin (.pdf) for more details and a map of the location of the entrance to be closed and alternative entrances. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and appreciate your patience.
If you need language assistance services, please call BART’s Transit Information Center at (510) 465-2278.
Updated Aug. 29, 2012, with closure and six year reopening estimate from SFMTA.
