WES is having signal problems. Riders should expect 10-15 minute delays.

BART CONTROVERSY RAGES ON AND ON

BART officials keep highlighting that their job is to provide safe passage for its passengers. That's true. But they are also part of a government agency with a police force. That power comes with the duty to use law enforcement authority responsibly, and with restraint.
Unfortunately, BART doesn't seem to recognize that. Police have fatally shot two men on station platforms in the past 2 ½ years.

L.A. transit activists rally for a federal probe

(This sounds very familiar!)
The union and several other activist groups at what was billed as a "transit justice town hall," accused the county transportation agency of hurting poor riders by aggressively pursuing new rail projects while slashing bus service. The groups say the cuts unfairly hurt low-income, nonwhite residents and insist that bus service needs to be expanded.
Redman described a recent experience, waiting for a transfer bus on a sun-baked curb for 45 minutes. She was dressed in a black business suit, Redman said, and she spent the time feeling miserable and praying for her bus to arrive and shuttle her toward Santa Monica.
"I wanted to cry. I was hot and sweaty," Redman said. "I was late for the interview."
