  • Double berthing is a joke. All that money testing something to be used at 3 inbound stations in the morning. Today, my train was second in line at all 3 stations…and we had to wait longer because of the train in front. But, I’m glad it’s creating jobs. For example, the overpaid MUNI employee standing on the platform holding a sign telling people where to board. Well, in theory that’s what he should have been doing. Instead, he was checking his phone.

    If we actually had a real grade-separated rail system there would be no need for double berthing and tunnel traffic would be greatly reduced running 3- or 4-car train sets. Instead, we’re basically running streetcars.
