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?

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.

I am a disabled person with serious pulmonary disease. During the Bart strikes my condition grew much worse due to pollution created from traffic of those driving to work. I believe that this may have killed some pulmonary patients. Does Bart have the right to harm others with their strike. I have always supported unions that have legitimate grievances. I can't support this when they already have such high salaries and benefits. They should have to pay medical and retirement just like everyone else. Please ban Bart strikes.

I realize it is the NTSB causing tomorrow's delay this time but they could't do their ivnestigation on a weekend without disrupting service to exhausted passengers so SOOOOOOOOOOON after the strike. After all, we all know the NTSB will find the same OSHA did when Mr. Strickland was hit. The bus bridges suck; they are really slow.

When I log in and see three threads with 30,40,50 responses all between two trolls having a pissing contest on the internet, that is where I have to draw the line. Some of the accounts are new, a few are not so new, and then there's Bartarded. I should have banned you a long LONG time ago, but I put up with your shit because, for the most part, it was on topic. Well, congratulations if you were trying to see how far you could go, you found it.
For the record here is what I have done.

Workers have had to come up to speed on technology and deal with little or no pay raises for the past several years. Why should BART employees be exempt?

Let me give you a preview of basic manual labor in the private sector (no high school degree needed)
Wage: $10 / hour
Vacation: 2 weeks
Schedule: whenever your boss tells you
That's why every BART opening has 200k applications - you are all over paid already!

It's time the unions and management felt the wrath of the public. While some people truely have no other way to get to their jobs and other places without BART, everyone else who can find a substitute should get together and boycott riding BART. A public strike/boycott would send a deafening message to both sides. As far as I'm concerned the unions are mostly to blame and wish they could all be fired and new non-union agents and drivers as well as the rest of the current employees of Bart should be sacked. There a thousands of people who would be qualified to replace them.
