    Regarding the BART-plus program: I don’t live in the area, but abolishing the program sounds counter productive when the various government entities should be encouraging transit use, not making in less convenient.  Unfortunately, transit managements and local governments all over the US tend to see their prime goal as “full employment for
    bureaucrats and consultants” rather than “fast, convenient and frequent transit service”.
