    Both the proposed Warriors site at Pier 80 and the Muni yard used as a backdrop to the stories about new service are at the eastern end of Cesar Chavez, which has no east-west bus service. Would a new basketball arena finally provide the impetus to serve this area? Doubtful if a new Muni yard didn’t do the trick. Workers there can’t even take their own buses from the west — they don’t exist.

    Also, with the new BART schedule, there’s a 30 minute gap from SF to Millbrae during the 8pm hour. BART expanded service on the red line for 1 hour, but also cut back the yellow line service to Millbrae for 1 hour. The last red line train to SF runs 30 minutes after the red line train before. Before the change the yellow line served Millbrae every 15 minutes during the 8pm hour before running every 20 minutes from 9pm.

    The more interesting fact is that there’s no southbound Caltrain service from Millbrae during the 8pm hour (there’s a train leaving 6 min before 8pm and 4 minutes after 9pm). Train 192 is actually quite crowded leaving SF, so Caltrain should run another train at about 8pm to reduce wait time and crowding.
