Oh just great -- now all of the obnoxious cell yappers can scream all the way to SF and everyone around them will just have to suffer.

And they will have to talk much louder, due to the train noise.
BARTD has been removing the sound absorbing carpet that they installed to deliver the elegant train that we are paying for- even tho Livermore still doesn't get service*- and replacing with tile that transmits the noise.

*Hey Bing, if you see this (or anyone):
How come Livermore needs to come up with more money to build the train to their city that BARTD promised in the first place? What happened to the money they've paid in for what 35 years?

Bart is building stations and extensions everywhere but Livermore?
What would it take for the people of Livermore to get their money back?
Or last stop paying more, until we get a station?

My suggestion is that you get more involved in government so that your voice is heard. It's one thing to complain and quite a different matter to work within the law to create change.

It's not enough to vote and think that you are being a responsible citizen.
