BART's Surplus Budget

It’s on BART’s $4.5 million surplus, and what riders think would be the best use of the extra money. I agree that a short-term fee decrease is not a good use—my top priority would be to extend hours past midnight, especially on weekends. I’ve had to cut good times short to catch the midnight train too often! Secondly, let’s clean up the cars a bit more.
The fee decrease would be 3% for 4 months… so instead of paying my $5 to get across the Bay I’m paying $4.85. I know things add up over time but I’d really rather pay the 15 cents and extend services.
