Reporter: BART SAID IT IS A TOP CONCERN FOR WRITERS. THE AGENCY SHARED THESE NEW GAIT OPTIONS WITH US. THE FIRST ONE IS A SWING STYLE GAIT. IT IS MODERN AND COMPARABLE TO THE EXISTING ONE IN TERMS OF RELIABILITY. THE SECOND IS A RETRACTABLE BARRIER. THEY SAY IT IS LESS RELIABLE AND HARDER TO MAINTAIN THAN THE CURRENT GATES.

  1. WHAT!😱 Public Transportation is a Human Right.
    Liberal DemocRATS Hypocrisy putting up barriers. I'm shocked.πŸ˜‚

  2. Why can't people just be honest? Just be a good citizen and be part of the solution instead the problem? We fought and struggled our whole adult lives to raise our children to be good people and somehow this persists.

  3. Every public transit has fare evaders, not sure why Bart gets so much hate, it’s hard to enforce especially if people are riding for a short distance

  4. Wonder if Bart is debating which fare gates are the least discriminating against the black and homeless people. Was visiting from china last week. And got in a pissed soaked elevator. Just ended up taking the stairs with my luggage. I hate califorina and san Fransisco with a passion. I wish my company would stop sending me to that shit hole. Even if it’s a couple times per year

  5. Let’s blame the Democrats. 4 not having electricity on the fence πŸ€¦πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

  6. How 'bout some good old fashioned enforcement officers? At the gates. Posted there all the time? I guarantee you it would cost less than revamping the entire system.

  7. IF THAT RETARDED SHIT4BRAINS BART IS SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN STOPPING FARE EVA$ION$, THEY'LL CHOOSE THE NEW YORK'S STYLE GATES, THEY'VE BEEN IN THE SUBWAY BUSINESS OVER A 100 YEARS!!!

  8. Most likely the majority of the board will prefer vanity (#1 or #2) over practicality (#3), which likely means they'll just fail once again and end up wasting more money.

  9. We need to most stringent one because any other one used will just be passed like the us border with Mexico like a joke. Use the third one asap………
