BART Meltdown this morning
Original post made by BART Rider, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Nov 22, 2013
Sources from a local news source said that BART blamed its aging computer system, saying it needed $15 billion in upgrades over the next 25 years.
We all know these upgrades will not happen since the unions have wiped out any money needed for this by extremely high salary and benefit costs. The unions say that BART is so flush in money that they should get more money in salaries and benefits. The unions could care less about the aging system and the costs to upgrade it. Fixing that would only help the riders and taxpayers, and not the union workers.
