  • Longer straps? Would be nice to have the escalator outside of the Montgomery St. BART/Muni station at 2nd St. fixed after being out of commission for over 3 months. Never a worker to be seen there fixing it. Great job, folks!

    The bike share at Rockridge BART is really weird. Maybe it interferes with the mural, but it definitely blocks the sidewalk, and there’s no way in or out of that bike rack without jumping the curb. It would have been so much more convenient if they had just put it in the parking lot.

    Right, I’m not suggesting that it blocks the view of it. The bike rack (which is installed in a U-shape) blocks walking up to it from the south. It’s not a big deal bit it is definitely awkward, and most importantly it just makes it awkward to walk up College on the west side.

  • No, it’s the same agency.
