    BART bathrooms should be reopened immediately. The terror threat was bogus when announced as any terrorist would have sought out one that was still open in a “nicer” location. Yes, keeping ANY public restroom clean is a chore; so is cleaning up the urine/feces left in other parts of the stations. As to staff/police, THEY have access to the locked toilets when nature calls, thus their attitudes deserve no credibility.

  • It is a little hard to see why cleaning pee off the floor of the elevators is somehow preferable to cleaning out a toilet.

    My favorite part of the anti-Warriors arena story:

    “We think…the impact is going to be grave and that this city will grind to a halt, and that the Manhattanization of San Francisco will occur and nobody will be able to drive around our city,” Sam Singer, a spokesman for the alliance, said after the draft EIR was released.

    So now we see what their real motivation is: they want another crack at Prop L.

    @MrEricSir Apparently you missed my point. If a cleaning crew is at the station anyway, cleaning the toilet should be part of the job. Having it AVAILABLE, should reduce the ambient soiling of other parts of the station.

    On crossing the Bay, ask me again why I am bitter that the completely wasteful new eastern span of the bridge was deliberately designed not to accommodate rail?
    The second tube AND rehab of the existing Dumbarton rail bridge should begin immediately.

    Apparently you missed the Eric got your point completely

    starting by telling the nurses that they won’t be able to drive to work and park as easily – I mean that the emergency vehicles will be stuck in carmageddon!

  • I have several things that I’m concerned about. I haven’t done even the most basic bit of research about them. I am very worried. I want to hold a press conference to air my concerns. Who do I need to talk to?

    Pssst…I think that was MrEricSir’s point. 😉

    GG bridge toll only goes up 25 cents while Oakland to SSF Ferry round trip increases by 80 cents. Do you think this is fair? The ferry fares are already at $14 round trip and we only get $130 pretax to pay our transit fares while drivers get $250 pretax to park their cars. What a ridiculous world we live in.
