BART's draft surveillance policy. its interesting as it details all the parts of where and how BART records its customers. I believe they should have a release within a week of police footage when there has been a shooting. But that may have to come from the state. I guess they're going to deploy CCTVs too to show people how they're being watched. And BART is buying 425 more new BART train cars
BART is going to contract with Braintree so they can process credit cards in the morning when they have to open at 5am, since before that the stations will be closed. This would allow people to pay for parking by credit card
East Bay BRT is kinda coming along
The results of transportation based bills in the state legislature. SF might be getting its TNC tax! And TNC now are paying a state tax to support accessible mobility

December BRT progress report
Homelessness and supportive housing department presentation
At least the BRT has finally started building again going 30%! Its been at 22% since the summer. Apparently a BRT street project takes as long as a subway construction in San Francisco
The strategic plan progress report from SFMTA. apparently the farebox ratio is going down, probably a result from ridership falling and their on-time performance slightly falling.

SFMTA legislative goals for the 2019 year
Vision Zero seems to not be a blazing success. It probably has deterred 100s of collisions but to say that it has declined the injuries is a bit much unfortunately.
So far Caltrain doesn't appear to be getting far behind for the electrification project.
Still working on what a fare policy could be. They seem to be overthinking it.
Caltrain appears to be beating the odds and actually mildly increasing ridership...

Adding bike lanes to the richmond-san rafael bridge
Building a Park and Ride in Albany under the 880 which sounds cool.
So this is interesting they've completed a pilot for attempting automated HOV lane passenger detection... it doesn't appear very satisfactory. 5-6% was false postives - cases where they had enough people to qualify but the system got it wrong.
Kinda funny MTC and ABAG are still trying to figure out a how to join together their staff. Now they have a schedule.
Bay Area election propositions that may have results effect transportation and housing.
Looks like BATA is planning to move toward Automated tolling. kinda seems as if its not worth changing over.
Triennial Public Transportation performance audit of particular agencies. most are doing worst but some have figured out how to at least stabilize ridership
Results from MTC RM2 sponsorship of routes, most are meeting their standard some aren't and look like they may never.
Update on RM2 projects a lot seems to have gotten done with the money, even if not everything is as promised.
MTC paying off the CAlifornia Highway Patrol to do their job. This is a confusing world
With well under half of votes counted, San Mateo County Measure W was less than .5% short of the votes required to win – much too close to call. On election night, results were inching...
