BART officials closed down the escalator on the southwest corner of the 24th Street station on April 4th after several steps crashed together at the top of the escalator, shredding the gear box. Repairs are expected to be completed by the end of June, according to BART. 

Labor costs for the project are included in BART’s operating budget, and communications officer Jim Allison said replacement parts will cost between  $75,000 and $100,000. For now, the escalator remains encased in plywood.
