San Jose BART delay: Milpitas, Berryessa stations likely to miss 2019 opening – East Bay Times
The culprit: More than 1,000 problems engineers have discovered since BART received the stations and tracks from the Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority over the summer, delaying more intensive testing BART needs to do before its trains can carry passengers to the new stops.

VTA, which is funding and building a $5.6 billion extension into downtown San Jose that BART will eventually operate, acknowledged last week that it has pushed back its estimate for when BART trains will reach planned stops at First and Santa Clara streets and at Diridon Station. Service there is now projected to start sometime in 2029 or 2030, rather than in 2026, as initially projected.
The extension will need at least 3 months of testing -- testing that has not officially started yet.

Will new Milpitas and Berryessa BART stations open this year? They just missed a key deadline – East Bay Times
BART was supposed to begin its “pre-revenue testing” process at the two new stops by Oct. 21 at the latest, the date an agency spokeswoman said had to be met if the stations were to open by the end of the year. But the testing did not begin until Monday — a week late. The Milpitas and Berryessa stops are the first phase of the long-awaited extension that will eventually bring trains through Downtown San Jose.
So its opening may be pushed into early 2020.
