Embarcadero cleaning

It seems that the walls in the Embarcadero station are actually white! Who knew? I'm glad to hear that they're finally getting a thorough cleaning. I hope this doesn't stop with Embarcadero: it'd be great to see all the other stations similarly cleaned up. And I'm glad to hear that that ugly overgrown macramé thing at the end of the platform has been dumped.

I asked him what had happened his reply was "I don't know sometimes they just stop. Bart PD came and took a report and also the agent. the agent called a ambulance. and I was taken to the emergency were xrays showed that I had trauma to my neck shoulders and lower back.

Aggressive Pan Handler who states son is stuck at airport

If you are riding Bart and a guy announces in a loud voice that his son is stuck at the airport because his bag is overweight and needs cash DO NOT GIVE HIM MONEY! It is a scam. He claims to be military and works at Kaiser but does not have money. He is a male black, approx. 6'0/muscular build, bald headed and wearing glasses. This piece of crap does this constantly and preys on the generosity of people who actually think he needs help. He collects money and quickly gets off the train. Yesterday he got off at Concord. Very aggressive. Don't give him anything, please pass on.

Car of the future preview

Went to the car of the future preview this week. Not bad at all--yes, the seats are rather cramped, but less so than I thought they'd be. I can actually sit down properly in them, which I hadn't expected to be able to do, as I'm 6'7" tall. I also liked the displays inside that show a live map and the current station, though the displays could be larger to be more readable from across the car.

What did others think?

Bart Alternatives

Does anyone know of any resources such as for finding carpools? BART is getting to be a bit expensive commuting to work each day. I'm not looking for entirely free rides and would be happy to give the driver a buck or two for gratitude. I'm looking for a way to get from WC to downtown Oakland to get to work.

Train Operator Position

Does anyone know when BART will be hiring train operators again?
