    BART released a design to enclose their escalator wells: http://www.bart.gov/news/articles/2013/news20130627.aspx

    It’s very pretty, but right now only planned to pilot one installation at 19th street station, and it’s going to cost $2,000,000.

    I like the design too, but think all that plexiglass is going to get tagged and etched with graffiti pretty quick. Perhaps easier to clean sides and just the plexiglass on top to let the light in would be a better solution. The sides could even be painted or decorated to better represent the surrounding environment and community.

  • Andy Chow

    The reason that there has been no canopy is trying to preserve the view of the buildings and the sidewalk from the street. So if the sides are solid then that will be a problem. Lake Merritt is the station that has canopies over the entrances but because it is in a park it is not an issue.

  • Anonymous

    Maybe just solid sides up to 7 feet and then plexiglass above? Or perhaps semi-transparent decals on the side that are disposable if they get trashed.

  • You got the name wrong for the bicyclist killed – Herhold is the author of the article.

  • • So the BART bike ban is being lifted on the same day BART is set to strike. Are we going to ride through the tunnels, then?

  • Stay home and respect the strike.
