Idea ... BART buyout?

Just curious but would a BART buyout ever be possible? I bet if another company brought them, it would run much better than it does now.

Not possible. An entity would need to buy the entire shabang - including infrastructure. A company would not be able to have access to the sales tax base, the property tax base, state, regional and federal transportation grants. To take up the difference, consider your daily fare increasing by more than 3x-5x. The only "people" that can afford buying out BART would be the Chinese government and they seem to know how to run railroads. As you may know, the Chinese railroad system is rife with corruption and scandal.
