    The BART board should be ashamed of deploying armed police and dogs to intimidate riders. Just horrible.

    Some good BART news: On Thursday, the board will consider joining the MTC’s means-based fare discount program. This would give a 20% discount to riders with a household income lower than 2 times the poverty level. It’s not really enough, but it’s a good start, and because Caltrain, Muni and Golden Gate Transit are also expected to participate, I like to think it’s a small step towards regional fare integration.

    You can email boardofdirectors@bart.gov to voice your support. Details: https://mtc.ca.gov/our-work/plans-projects/other-plans/means-based-fare-discount-program

  • Great! As a middle class resident not only am I being priced out of owning a home and squeezing by to pay rent, but once the transit agencies increase fares to offset revenue loss from discounts (and because they always raise fares) my commute will become even more expensive.
