It is just me or does $1.9 million per car seem a little pricey?

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.

There are lots of open spaces at BART. They're just all Reserved/Permit spaces that don't open up until 10:00 (and rarely get filled at all). Way to keep commuters off the freeway, BART.
I complained about all those empty Permit spaces to BART once, but they didn't bother to respond.
