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.
Does anyone know when BART will be hiring train operators again?
Yesterday, my daughter car was stolen from the bart stations and it was found next day at E street near elementary school. Not sure if this was some school kid (or) professional car theif. I want to contact the elementary school to check if they have any video recording of car and theif.
Car conditions was so bad with both Airbag busted and Power Steering wheel so hard, that it won't move.
Great idea, but how are people going to use this when large parts of the system has no/very bad cell phone coverage? (especially data, which you would need for sending pictures)
An empty train derailed Friday night on its way back to the Concord yard. FOR SOME REASON PASSENGER TRAINS ARE ALWAYS STUCK WAITING FOR THESE ANNOYING EMPTY TRAINS GONG BACK TO CONCORD YARD. THEY SHOULD NEVER BE GIVEN PRIORITY OVER PASSENGER TRAINS. SOMETIMES WE'RE STUCK AT CONCORD YARD 5-10 minutes WAITING FOR SOME WORKER TO MOVE THEIR FUCKING TRAINS AT THE YARD. When will BART get its shit together.
Perhaps dedicating one car per train for bikes and their riders would benefits everyone.
KTVU recently aired a report on a set of crossover tracks that BART built between Pleasant Hill and Walnut Creek stations from 2009 to 2011. Fast forward to 2014 and the crossover tracks are still not working. According to the report BART blames computer and wiring problems for the crossover not working since according to BART they are merging "new" and "old" technology...even though this isn't the first set of crossover tracks BART has built since the system opened.
OK, when will Moe, Larry and Curly learn. Here we go with another quarter million dollar consultant to tell the public what went wrong in negotiations. At the end of the day, the report should be worth five cents. Egos and assholes is what went wrong. The workers wanted a simple cost of living raise plus a bean or two for the past 4 years of zip and management put up the middle pinky. Mgt determined that our place in society was too high and we needed to continue to tumble down the class scale. Yet they demand top performance.
OK, so I think we all get that BART Management is two people. No names need to be mentioned, but just check the lunch lines around the office and you will figure out. Anyway, Obama talked about the need for employers to improve stagnant wages and thus improve employee moral and the like. I guess the dud duo missed their opportunity to be ahead of things, rather they continue to be reactive in every way. Sad state of moral at BART, all for what turned out to be a simple cost of living wage. The cost of the strike is well published in the millions. Public things we are a bunch of clowns.
When are the two feed baggers responsible for the strike going to pay the price for the $8.4M bill run up for the strike. This is quite the example of competent decision making with tax payer dollars. We will see how many times these bloated clowns pick up the phone and order limitless sandwiches and pizzas when they are on their dime. Time to lube the hinges on the out door and swing it a few times. The only guy that will miss these two Hefers is Nick downstairs. Have a nice day...........
I've been noticing recently that bike riders abandoned any semblence of courtesy and take their precious climate saviors to their seats with them. Not only do they block the next seats but the aisles as well. So much for that grand experiment.
Corrupted company. If you go to the company main site dataticket.com their mission is to maximize revenue for their client...ie. BART.
OK so the District rids itself of the Rudy's last month. Of course the two fat ass fucks that caused all the problems protected there space in the buffet line and fired a Rudy over signing the labor agreement. What a joke.
These fat fucks hired some clown at a cool have million to bring expertise to the bargaining process. Arent there the same lard asses that hired two executive managers that did not last 30 months combined here at BART. Give me a break. These wide asses can not evaluate talent because they have none themselves.
Get rid of this powered doughnut act already.........
1. Saw a woman with her scarf caught in the door as the train left the station. Operator wasn't looking.
2. Operator opened door over freeway 680 on way to walnut creek
3. Operator closed door on a woman with a baby carriage.
4. Guy taking a piss in the corner
5. Announcement that all trains were on time when they were 15 to 20 minutes late
6. Train going to Walnut Creek switched to Richmond
Never have I seen such a fucked up transit system with such a bunch of incompetent staff, police, management etc. Clusterfuck is the best description.
Are they F'ING kidding us? $40-60 a month just for parking?
"There will be a $0.50 daily parking fee increase at many stations in the month of January, 2014. All revenue generated from these new fees will be placed into a special account only to be used for programs for improved station access, including shuttle and feeder service to stations, and much needed station rehabilitation, and modernization."
