Until BART takes the high crime rate more seriously and hires substantially more officers to patrol trains, platforms, parking, etc, it continues to be open season on innocent victims, and I won't be using BART, and I'll continue spreading the word to everyone I know to avoid this crime trap.

I have always used Bart, without fear...I was not afraid to ride even late at night, ALONE
Now I will not ride at noon or any other time..
Bart is not safe, until you spend money on safety and take care of riders with protection in each car...!!!!

NO POLICE protection~~~~NO BART

More Bart officers actually on the trains and in the stations and less driving around in their SUV’s. Still wondering what happened to that $200K + janitor that was hiding in the cleaning closets, that news story faded away real quick!! No Bart for me till they are made safer and cleaner, still won’t vote on any bond money for these clowns until they replace the entire Bart board.

Something needs to be done about BART. So many other cities have much safer, cleaner, and cheaper trains.

BART is a disgrace.

It’s not just BART. The whole state is. Dumpster fire. Roads crummy, infrastructure falling apart, crime ,poor schools but hey we have the illegals, homeless, and sanctuary cities.
