BART Board Meeting

From TransForm:

Help keep BART safe, reliable, frequent, and affordable by weighing in on the future of BART!

The BART Board of Directors will be seeking input on their ten-year Short Range Transit Plan/Capital Investment Program.  They are in the process of deciding what their final spending plans for fiscal years 2015-2025 should be, and will adopt those final plans at their meeting on October 9.

PLEASE JOIN US to urge the BART Board members to adopt a plan that will meet our current needs first before deferring any more critical re-investment in the interest of costly expansions! While it is clear that some of the Directors understand the urgent need of core system repairs, we need a majority to ensure that funds are re-invested in your current BART ride now.
