The BART Board of Directors is considering pushing back the start of weekday service from 4am to 5am to accommodate their system-wide refurbishment project. BART should have done a better job of maintaining their system from the start; now they want to disrupt the commutes of thousands of early morning riders so that they can catch up. There are plenty of riders on BART in the 4 o'clock hour: construction workers, muni drivers and passengers heading to the airport, not to mention countless professionals with early start times. To deem these riders "collateral damage" and subject them to Bay Area traffic and parking isn't just inconsiderate, it's bad business.

There have to be other options besides this drastic move: compromise with 30 minutes shaved off of the evening service end and the morning service start; an acceptable partnership with AC transit to provide bus service...just to name a few.

If your commute would be adversely affected by BART pushing back their service start time by an hour, please sign this online petition and send a message to the BART Board of Directors.
