Stupid idea to begin with! You see all these big, articulated AC Transit buses cruising through San Leandro nearly empty. BART serves the entire area from Berkeley to San Leandro and far beyond. Yeah BART doesn't go down East 14th Street but it goes pretty close between Fruitvale and Hayward. Local feeder buses connect with BART and cover all the stops on East 14th as well as the area between Berkeley and Oakland. This is the case of city leaders trying to grab $100 million of Federal money and lots of our local tax dollars too to build a system nobody needs or wants...except maybe the Oakland thugs who want an additional means of transit to come down and do "their thing" in San Leandro. I mean aren't there enough thugs getting off at BART Bayfair Station now? This is a dumb idea which needs to be nipped in the bud RIGHT NOW!
