An additional corridor not part of the plan completed since the agency's inception is the automated guideway transit spur line that connects BART to Oakland International Airport which opened in For the subway segment in San Jose, VTA plans to use a tunnel boring machine for most of the length in order to reduce disruptions to downtown during construction. The construction of the cut and cover stations in downtown San Jose would still cause major albeit temporary disruption, including closing several blocks of Santa Clara Street and severing the VTA light rail line at that street.

The BART map is getting its biggest refresh in a decade, as officials Friday rolled out a new map for the system to incorporate the soon-to-open Milpitas and Berryessa stations. The new map will become a fixture of trains and stations whenever the new stops start welcoming passengers. BART staff finalized its new system map in preparation for the future Milpitas and Berryessa station opening and will present it to the Board of Directors next week. The new South Bay stops required BART to rework the entire map design, rescaling it to make room for the mile extension. Beyond the new stations, most of the design changes will take a keen eye to spot. But officials say the redesign is generally geared toward making the map easier to read, and highlighting the stops where BART connects with other public transit systems, such as Caltrain and Muni.
