Can the cars be soundproofed better?

It is SOOOO loud in the tunnels and Transbay Tube.

That is probably an OSHA thing. 85 decibels is the max without hearing protection. You could probably report it to OSHA and they might do a short study. Yeah I know, I'm high.

It's always louder in the cab, soundproofing comes at a cost BART isn't willing to pay.

Oh, NOW you start to notice.

(sigh)

Hopefully the next gen cars will be soundproofed.
