While replacing 40 yr old Bart traincars is important, the most critical issue for BART survival is Parking. I wonder if a study has been done to see how much Revenue is lost because people cant find a parking space. I would invest in some vacant spaces near BART stations and then get smaller buses to shuttle passengers. Maybe you could cut a Wheels bus in half for that purpose, lol.

IF you think parking is bad now, just wait.
When they wanted our votes to build the Bartd, they promised ample and free parking. Not only is there now a charge for the "free" Parking, but
BARTD has already quietly sold much of the ground parking lots near the Pleasanton Station to a developer. I think they got them to pay or help pay for that ugly parking structure. So not only will our lots soon disappear, but they will build apartments who will also need to park somewhere. Let's hope BARTD doesn't let the builder block our remaining lots for the construction.
Just another example of how BARTD does not respect the people at this end of the line.
