Or is BART a lot more crowded the last three weeks? I've been way further back in the parking lot than usual, and it's been standing room only on BOTH ends of my commute for the last three workdays. I don't remember the holidays affecting the commute this much in the past, but that seems to be the only explanation. Did they lose a train or something? Check under the mat, maybe there's a spare under there somewhere.
So, I know what we're all *really* worked up about are the more rage-inducing problems like late trains, inconsiderate people, etc. But I've been curious about other angles that can be taken in terms of making BART a better experience, and I have one I'd like to share with you all.
It seems as if BART raises fares each year. Has it ever reduced fares before?
I MISS HIM. SERIOUSLY, HE STOOD UP FOR THE PEOPLE MOST IMPORTANT TO BART, THE RIDERS. YOU PEOPLE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES, ESPECIALLY THAT "TRAINOPERATOR9" IDIOT. FUCK YOU, WHY WEREN'T YOU BANNED TOO? EVEN YOU PORTRAY YOURSELF AS A ROBOT IN YOUR PICTURE. SUITES YOU WELL AND WHATEVER "WORK" YOU DO TO STEAL YOUR BLOATED SALARY.
BARTTARDED KICKED TRAINOPERATOR9'S ASS IN EVERY POST. I THINK IT'S SAFE FOR ME TO SAY THAT EVERYONE HERE HATES TRAINOP9. GET THE HELL OFF THIS PLANET!
Here is my story... My hubby called me this morning and asked me to go pay the parking for his car since the machine he was inputting didn't work and he needed to catch the train. When I arrived to the Bart (10 mins after his call) and explained to the agent about my situation, she just pointed me to sign on the window that "this is the rule to not paying your parking ticket late"
I have no idea why this rule exists. The agent has already assumed me helping my hubby's parking ticket late. But even if people purposely paying late (which is not in my case), we still pay for the parking.
Board of Directors may turn down contract over a "clerical error".
Well, no one wanted to tell the T.O. since that of course would stop the train.. Way to keep the schedule people.
Gotta love Bart for operating on a holiday schedule today during rush hour. Trains every 15 minutes on a "holiday" that everyone outside of schools, banks, and government employees work on. After waiting 15 min for the PBR/SF train to arrive and not one person in a line of 20 could get on, I decided to drive to the city. Even the T.O. was shaking his head about what a mess it was.
you were awesome through that whole nasty delay last night. i appreciate you! I'm checking the paper now to see if there is anything about last night's incident in the news. Will BART ever normalize?
Why must people insist on bringing such large amounts of luggage?!?! Train wasn't quite SRO but still...
Voters in Livermore voted to approve a property tax hike to pay for a BART extension to Livermore, but do you notice something fishy about BART's options on what to do with the money?
No articles yet out on the change, but reporters on Twitter are reporting that the BART board of directors unanimously voted to allow bikes on BART at all times.

Bruno Cohen of KPIX. KPIX sourced the Bay Area Council on multiple stories about the BART strike. One KPIX report misleadingly stated that “economists estimated the first day of the BART strike costs the region $73 million in lost worker productivity alone.” The “economists” were Bay Area Council lobbyists. The story did not disclose Cohen’s seat on the board of the Bay Area Council.

OK so the big tough Mgt negotiation team bolstered itself with the $400K man who splits to Disneyland at hour of most need. Nice. I hope the 14th and 23rd floors enjoy signing that check for those wonderful services rendered. MGT got their ass kick in the negotiation process. The lost at every turn. Could not happen to a nice bunch...........really......take the last train to loserville. Time for clean the carpets on 14 and 23........
