Parsons Corporation announced June 12 that the company was selected by Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) to continue delivering general engineering services (GES) to the transit agency through 2028 as part of a five-year, $40 million task order contract (TOC).

According to Parsons, the TOC is the fourth consecutive GEC contract that the company has won with BART and may include projects, such as strategic planning to convert portions of the agency’s non-revenue fleet to zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), support for capital programs, track and civil design, traction power engineering support, structural and geotechnical design, and fiber optic upgrades.

Parsons has supported BART for more than 30 years and is currently providing design services during construction to the agency for the implementation of a Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) system. The CBTC system, which will be the “largest deployed in North America when complete,” includes replacing the automatic train control system on 125 miles of track to improve passenger carrying capacity, provide a state of good repair, and help deliver a safer, more efficient transit system, the company said.

“BART provides pivotal connections for those who work, play, and visit the Bay Area,” said Peter Torrellas, President, Connected Communities Business Unit for Parsons. “Parsons was founded in California, and we look forward to continue leveraging our local footprint to deliver sustainable, affordable, efficient infrastructure solutions that further improve the BART system and connect communities across the Bay as we’ve done for decades.”
