Position Papers
Develop Environmentally sound sustainable BART access policies
Suburbanite's Primary access (75-82%) to BART is via the auto while SF has only 54 of BART's 41,666 spaces, more suburban parking will create a greater inequity. Auto access is environmentally unsound and not sustainable.
Sustainable developments at BART Stations
BART should jointly plan and develop Sustainable Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) with communities along its current and future R/W. TODs increases BART ridership and fare recovery with more off-peak riders (a time when BART has lots of capacity) as well as reduce auto use, energy use, air pollution and improve our urban and social condition.
Seismic Retrofit
If BART's needs are prioritized Seismic Retrofit should be the top capital item to implement.
