    The BART article was sort of frustrating. It’s great that BART got a windfall and isn’t in the red anymore, but I don’t know if new seats are the best use of money, not when undoing fare increases are only “possible” and restoring service levels isn’t even on the table. BART’s weekend and evening service is too crowded and infrequent, and I think this is a bigger obstacle to ridership than fares or seat comfort. But then, when has BART management ever been known for its fiscal wisdom?
