    The clock may not strike midnight anymore for BART riders trying to grab the last train for the night.

    Late-night or round-the-clock BART services could begin in the fall on a six-month trial basis, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

    BART has briefly tested the idea over the years and riders have long asked for the extended service.

    Under a proposal that BART's Board of Directors will consider, trains that now leave the end-of-the-line stations at midnight would leave an hour later on Friday nights.  However, in order to allow for maintenance, Saturday service would start an hour later at 7 a.m.

    BART will be looking to see if there is indeed a demand for the extended service during the trial period. 

    If directors support the proposal, trains could start running later on Fridays in September.
