BART ridership rose noticeably because of the Bay Bridge closure Wednesday night to allow crews to transition traffic onto the bridge’s new eastern span, a BART spokesman said Thursday morning.

San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit officials say higher ridership and a tax boost have brought in an extra $11 million.
