Some clown gets trapped under the Hayward platform and halts all trains into or out of Hayward for more than 3 hours during evening commute. Any information provided by bart as to what happened? Negative. Any information as to why bart cancelled its plans for a bus bridge between bayfair and south hayward? Negative. Any attempt to accommodate thousands of passengers milling about and stranded at bayfair? Negative. One short, retarded article in the sf chronicle called it a "brief" delay in service.
Leave it to bart to f@ck up an otherwise beautiful friday. Thanks retards!!
Once again, Bart runs an inadequate number of trains for opening season for the Oakland A's. Like last year, they will say they have run more trains than the year before; therefore we have solved the problem. But the reality is the number of trains on opening day baseball is hopelessly inadequate. The train i was on actually stopped and started continuously between bayfair and san leandro. Give me a f@cking break Bart. Pay attention to the rest of the universe...
This thing has been down for about 5 months. Montgomery -- arguably one of the busiest rush hour stops on the entire line. It is assumed Bart is missing some obscure yet vital mechanical piece to restore service. I bet a full-grown elephant could have been shipped to a tiny village in Nepal in less than half that time. Bart you are a f@cking joke -- no wait, strike that. Bart RoCkS!!
Just when I thought maybe bart was getting its shit together, no SF train shows up in fremont. No announcement, no notice on the displays, no acknowledgment by the TO. Just me 15 minutes late (again) with no explanation except the usual "BART SUCKS." What a bunch of tools--- I give up.
Monday: Into the city: Train leaves a few minutes late as usual from Fremont. Returning home: police activity at Hayward, Bart train stops dead for 20 minutes. Once it gets to station, it waits another 10 minutes.
Tuesday: Into the city: 6:36 a.m. train from Fremont...never shows up. Have to wait for 6:51 train, which also leaves late. No announcement, no explanation from Bart. I guess operators are cool with just not mentioning a non-existent train during rush hour? Returning home: transfer at Bayfair and wait 12 minutes for a train-- guess they're running behind again.
