Here’s a trip down memory lane: Recognize this BART station? Yes, that’s Duboce Park providing the greenery behind the station, but what gives?
@McClure_SF on Twitter posted this photo of a BART station built some time in 2005 for a Will Smith film.
Just by the ol’ eyeball test, this monster screen looks to be able to cover about 75 percent of the width of a BART train. Can’t wait for it to be considered too small.
h/t BART rider Joey: “I hope he knows how many elevators are out of service.”
Used to be we were okay with BART escalators being covered in pee and poo. Then, funny thing happened: We found out that that was the case. BART found out we found out, and decided to do something about it. Sort of.
What has ensued is what feels like centuries (literally!) of broken BART escalators all over the Bay Area.
BART rider and friend of Muni Diaries @TheRealWBTC noticed recently that at least one out-of-service escalator at Powell Street Station has, um, started to fill up with a different kind of waste (above, from below, and above from below).
My question for BART: What exactly is going on here?
Probably not everyone or all the time, but …
h/t BART rider Brendaa: “There’s being stoned, and then there’s ‘eating ice cream on a train with a lighter’ type of stoned”
It’s #funnyFriday, right? That’s, like, a thing. No?
I spotted this man and his little orange tree a couple Fridays ago on my way back from San Leandro. I remember joking to myself that he must getting off at the Fruitvale stop. Imagine my surprise when, in fact, he did.
This is a photo of a woman on a hoverboard buying BART tickets. Happy Friday!
