    Newly horrified that @SFBART is going ahead with an EIR for a freeway-median-only extension to Livermore ebbc.org/?q=node/10059 via @EBBC

  2. @enf seriously, @SFBART is still pursuing this? Cancel the whole project and spend the the money elsewhere.

  3. @markasaurus @SFBART Apparently so. There are so many better things they could spend it on, and I submitted my public comment saying so.

  5. @markasaurus @SFBART "Oak to 9th"? I said Solano or 30th St for infill or Geary for new line, but agree E. Oakland could use more stations

  7. @enf I agree 30th Street would be another good @SFBART candidate. Maybe Solano.

  8. @theoverheadwire Before I thought @SFBART was pushing back against people who wanted it in the freeway. Apparently I was wrong.

  9. @markasaurus @enf @SFBART A 30th and Mission station would get more riders than the Livermore extension too

    @enf @SFBART It seemed like they had the ability with the TOD policy, but the people out there are complaining about paying into BART

  10. @theoverheadwire @markasaurus @SFBART They are estimating 21K daily riders for Livermore, which is insane given what Dublin/Pleasanton gets

  11. @enf if they get an extra 20k riders, where are they going to fit them?

    Electric cars are still cars

  12. @enf Right, I meant MTC, but yes, BART also has a TOD policy. bart.gov/docs/planning/…

  13. @enf @theoverheadwire I'm sure @SFBART will predict whatever numbers they need to get it built.

  14. @enf @markasaurus @SFBART Yeah I have to call BS on that estimate. Especially given the land uses. If they went into downtown Livermore...

    @enf @markasaurus @SFBART maybe but not in freeway alignment. It will just shift drivers from Pleasanton to Livermore & maybe catch more

  15. @theoverheadwire @markasaurus @SFBART BART doesn't have *any* stations outside of downtown SF that have that many daily riders.

    @markasaurus @theoverheadwire @SFBART I'm sure they will, but why does anyone ever believe any of these numbers?
