They want to extend Yarrington road to SH130, its still in the planning/study phase.Which property? Why the hell do they need a road at Maxwell?
For some reason that I don't remember, the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) terminal "at" San Francisco International Airport (SFO) wasn't built at the airport, but a couple of miles away.
And for some reason, riding the shuttle between the BART terminal and SFO terminal required its own ticket.
Having had a couple of experiences with malfunctioning ticket machines at both ends of the shuttle, I gave up on the BART to SFO stuff.
It’s been 6 years since I last was in SF, but my primary memory of BART is how simple it is to get from the airport to downtown.
"Yeah, both sides let it go now."
Huh. Guess it's better to get one back when republican blubbering shows up, instead of mentioning it to moderation. Your rules, not mine. let the wild rumpus start.
Other side gets one it's only fair, as long as neither is crazy out of line. Report is even better, of course. Trying to prevent one or another comment here or there is about like herding cats around here, especially with the somewhat inconsistent rules from upper management.
There was at least one more very rude uncalled for comment from gregsy earlier in this thread. And this isn't the first time he has taken a decent thread and trashed it with his antics of bashing liberals. And I called him out on if a few months ago and the thread eventually got closed.
It appears to me that when right leaning members beat up on libs it fine as long as they don't do it too much but when a lib responds to them, they get banned. I'm proof of that.
And I noticed that the MFG area is a real quiet place now too.
No I didn't report the first one. I was hoping that he'd go away.
By all means everyone in NYC, Chicago, LA and all major cities should own a minimum of a car each and drive them every time they need to go more than a block.The 'need' for mass transit is at the very core of liberalism. It's one of the cornerstones of their platform; it's an excellent way to control people and dictate how they live. Every major city that is diseased has multiple and extensive mass transit systems. The two go hand in hand.
Mass transit is not a need. A place to poop and pee - that's a need. Food. Water. Energy. Those are needs. Mass transit is the modern version of bread and circuses. It's the shit liberal elitists shovel at the minions to keep them down.
Years back, I took the San Francisco BART from the airport to downtown at the advice of a co-worker I later learned was a full-blown liberal. It was only $16 instead of $35 for a cab. Hallelujah! It also took 2 hours instead of 30 minutes and I had to dick with figuring out which train to take and just how and where to get the right tickets. When it finally got to my stop...I still had to walk up two flights of filthy stairs then down three blocks to my hotel - all while dragging my suitcase. Who wants to live like that?
Yarrington seems pretty stupid to me. The 150 extension would be a lot cheaper and less intrusive.They want to extend Yarrington road to SH130, its still in the planning/study phase.
As such, user-friendliness of the system-to-system interchanges is vital to customer satisfaction. BART and the local transit agencies do reasonably well,

Thanks for the update; my experiences with the BART to SFO trip were right after its opening. Your more recent "smooth" experiences encourage my trying again.
Beyond that, I'll comment that BART was conceived as (and in fact is) an updated version of the old-fashion "interurban" train system. It's primary purpose is to move people from city to city within a region, not from neighborhood to neighborhood within a city. As such, user-friendliness of the system-to-system interchanges is vital to customer satisfaction. BART and the local transit agencies do reasonably well, but I'd still recommend that they take a good look at Paris RATP's interchanges between the RERs and Metro, which has been the best I've experienced.
It is not 6' gauge it is 5 foot gauge for a slightly better ride then standard 4' 8.5" with less side to side rocking. This is Russian/Indian gauge. I think even "modern' Russia knows more about trains and tracks then the Roman Empire did at it's height while laying roads for carts with 4' 8.5" wheel track.6' gauge, are you kidding me ? way to run up costs for absolutely no benefit.
