Here is the official statement from BART:
As we approach the system-wide changeover from 11:00 am to 5:00 am on February 11, 2019, many BART drivers want to know exactly when the first trains will leave as soon as the schedule changes. For the first time on weekdays, trains will start from the midline stations (Concord, South Hayward and Daly City) to start up the service and bring drivers to the core of the system faster. All early morning trains will be long, and East Bay's first train arrives at Embarcadero station at 5:35. The train times can be found in the schedule according to stations and on the schedule according to sections of our website.
These are the new start times, broken down by stations:
