Bart's a mess, but don't blame the workers
Although a BART strike was averted by a last minute agreement and a new contract, there is still much commuter dissatisfaction with the Bay Area's largest transit system. BART was created in the 1960s well after General Motors, it's front organization National City Lines, the automotive industry, the oil cartel, and the US Government decided to destroy inner-city mass transit by declaring it obsolete and declaring that the private automobile with its wasteful and polluting internal combustion engine was the pinnacle of freedom.

From the Newswire... "BART workers need to realize that the riders ought to be their allies, not their enemy. Instead of engaging in a work-stoppage strike, BART workers ought to consider a strike that allows all riders to ride for free.... Meanwhile, BART ridership needs to realize that the BART workers are not their enemy either. BART workers don't decide to raise BART fares, BART management does." Read More.
