    BART will never allow a Millbrae -> SFO shuttle. Why do you think they sunk San Mateo County transit for the next 30 years in debt? It wasn’t so that you could take a shuttle to the airport.

    With two people, it costs the same to take a taxi from SFO to Millbrae station. The only downside putting up with the grumpy taxi driver.

    @mikesonn:disqus it also wasn’t so that 60% of a transit-riding population would drive to the airport because the Caltrain-to-BART-to-BART dance just doesn’t work.

    I think the Caltrain-BART dance sucks. I take the KX if coming from the south. BART wants you on their system if you are taking transit, they’ll block a shuttle. Just reality. They don’t care the dance sucks or that people drive.

  • If they make it too easy to take BART to the airport from Caltrain, then BART will lose all those customers paying for long term parking in the BART lots in Millbrae and San Bruno…

    @mikesonn:disqus SamTrans is considering truncating the KX at Redwood City; if you start further south than that, let them know, ssp@samtrans.com – they’re taking comments til April 15

    I ride from RWC. I know they are dropping the KX, what a joke. It pretty much is a local until it gets on 101, it needs to skip more stops along ECR.
