Services continues to diminish. It is at below 2008 pre-economy crash levels with no service restoration in site. BART is talking about rebuilding Montgomery and Embarcadero BART Stations when the trains are already so crowded you can't Board so what good is that going to do unless BART starts running trains more often first????
I really wonder about the people who run BART sometimes. I'm very disappointed in BART's Board for taking so long with East County after we've been paying property taxes forever and ever and ever, as well as the rest of the fees and increased fares.
LAST NIGHT'S SINGLE TRACKING SUCKED AND THEY ARE GOING TO DO IT FOR THROUGH MARCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Submitted by bart_rider on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 8:42pm
I can't believe what pathetic service BART provides. BART can't think of a better way to do earthquake retrofitting. We received NO NOTICE of single tracking last night until we were down on the platform. What about people who have bus connection. Why doesn't BART just revise the schedule so they can single track and we catch a train friggin fucking at the time BART says the train will be on the platform. The fucking late night commute is already slow and mmiserable enough.
After losing 50% of my FSA, I was delighted to see that at least my commuter benefits have been restored to what they were in 2011. Takes a little bit of the sting out of losing my FSA money. I read this last night in the SF Examiner on BART on my home from work. I also appreciated having a nice commute home last night on BART except for this guy peeing on the Montgomery platform (Embarcadero side); that was gross. I feel really sorry for BART workers that have to walk into those tunnels. This was on the SFO Airport side.
I can't believe BART Central did that to us because of police activity at Concord. BAD DECISION. It was freezing,freezing cold out there and the situation was almost resolved before you kicked us off the train. You had us holding at every other BART station all the way out there, the situation was COMPLETELY resolved within three minutes of BART Central doing that. You tout increased police officers during the holiday season, yet I have bearly seen any BPD on BART or on the platforms where BPD is needed just to manage these idiot drunks trying to Board departing trains and falling down.
There is barf everywhere at Concord, Montgomery, Walnut Creek, Civic Center, Embarcadero BART stations.
I was at Walnut Creek on the platform waiting to board a train that was supposed to show up in five minutes. The train never came and there was no announcement. Just curious.
I hope they keep this guy; he's really nice and helpful. Very approachable.
The pack of passengers that sprinted up the escalator and were standing at the top of the stairs after the doors closed REALLY APPRECIATED that you stopped and opened the doors for us and let us on.
Please send email protesting pre-tax commuter benefits reduction from $230 to $125 by Congress by sending letter to below linkSubmitted by bart_rider on Wed, 01/04/2012 - 4:33pm
Further Details below:
New National Effort Urges Congress to Take Action to Extend the $230 Pre-Tax Transit Limit
Just as with last year, Congress has again delayed any action on an extension to the $230 pre-tax transit limit that went into effect in early 2009. If Congress does not act in 2011, the transit limit will be reduced to $125 month on January 1, 2012, and any election amount over $125 should be deducted from a participant’s pay on an after-tax basis.
I always leave a lot of space on both sides so you must have been drunk off your ass or backed into it.
According to SF Gate, Linton Johnson is telling everyone to find another way home? That bites. No one is here. Why aren't there buses going to East Bay? Major expletative! BART SO SUCKS.
Guess WE HAVE to pay for the multi-million dollar overpass mistake. Disugsting.
Doesn't this just make your day with the crappy BART service we get in this struggling economy that frigging B gets $354,010 to make multi-million errors like the overpass the Dublin/Pleasanton station for starters. GET RID OF THIS OLD BAG and get someone who can do the job instead of raising fares and decreasing service and paying herself a BIG FAT FEE. ERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Thought I would take BART into work this morning. Show up at Walnut Creek at 7:50 a.m.; station closed. Station opens at 8:00 a.m., first train at 8:16 which arrives late. Should have drove to Orinda because there is one leaving Orinda at 8:05 a.m.
