BART rider Chris sends word of a major sting operation on BART. That’s right, bike scofflaws, beware:

This morning, at 16th and Mission, a station agent was posted up at the fare gates asking every person attempting to enter with their bicycle which direction they were going. If they said East Bay or Downtown, then they were reminded that bikes were not allowed on BART. Some people were visibly annoyed… but no one seemed to not know about the rules… mostly people were asking the agent why this rule was starting to be enforced.

BART’s bicycle rules are here, for the record.

Anyone else seen these dragnet officers in action? Anyone got any strong feelings on the matter? Let us know in comments.
