BART Shenanigans

In transit shenanigans-news, BART's board voted for a penny-wise, pound-stupid temporary fare roll-back. In order to pass the roll-back, Board President James Fang conceded a handful of sweetneners to fellow board members in the form of part-time SEIU car cleaners, coffee bar tv monitors, and a superfluous command center. The board put through two measures that actually make sense, including a $750,000 "deep clean" of the system's seats, and a $1,000,000 budget reserve. Still, riders can now thank BART for a 3% fare reduction for a couple months. Is the MTA planning to roll back fares temporarily? I didn't think so. Score one for BART... temporarily.
