What's the difference between Bart employees and the bank CEO's?
gimme, gimme, gimme. Bart employee's with their huge salaries and fat benefit packages should, like the rest of us, take a pay cut and be damned glad they have a job. So many people are unemployed and if they do have a job can't afford to get to it. Transportation costs are going up faster than child care and housing. Hey! I'd be happy to take one of those Bart jobs for less money. I can stand and be rude to riders and I could do it without the smug attitude.

I work at SFO. I know that hundreds of SFO workers take BART to work and many of them have jobs that don't pay alot. These people will be adversely effected by BART charging a surcharge to SFO. I'm sure the fat cats on the board couldn't care less. I for one will be getting back in my car. IT's a shame because I like riding BART, but I will be done, It will no longer be cost effective for me.

I'm tired of seeing costs passed onto the individuals instead of the organizations in question controling costs and making cutbacks. Before BART even THINKS about raising fares they should tell us what they are doing to control their budget. Forget BART! I'll drive my Prius and listen to audio books in the car if I have to drive into the city.
poo on you BART! You stink!
