    ““People coming from the parking garage will no longer have to cross the traffic lanes in order to enter the station,” Griffiths said.

    You do realize, I hope, that BART is a suburban transit system specifically designed to serve those who need cars? And which replaces countless numbers of those same vehicular trips?

  • Jeffrey Baker

    The station has 9000 weekday riders and only 2000 parking spaces, so any way you want to look at it, arriving to the garage is the minority mode. Most people walk from further away than the garage, take the bus, or bicycle up the Ohlone Greenway.

  • Harris

    Well, there is a huge amount of parking, so presumably people did not vote against it.

  • John Murphy

    “this user is blocked”

  • Harris

    How is blocking out any viewpoint that challenges you working out for the broadness of your vision?
