    Glad to see the Beyond Chron article adding some needed analysis to the BART strike. One aspect of the situation I haven’t seen mentioned is the demonstration of how much we need public transportation and how it benefits everyone, including drivers. I’m always dismayed at SFMTA hearings when the only people testifying against fare hikes and service cuts are transit users and advocates. Drivers should be there on their knees thanking the goddess for the transit systems that make the roads clear enough for them to drive their private cars.
