AC Transit's final legislative review for the year. A lot of good things got approved. SB 742 to allow California Amtrak to have bus only passenger was chaptered. AB 934 - is an interesting bill I didn't notice before that would allow school buses to record and fine drivers that go around the bus when the bus "stop" sign is out. SB 278 is the bill that will become significant in the next year - FASTER proposal.
No one can say that AC Transit isn't trying to make the BRT work. Due to start march 2020.
transit changes occurring in December.
AC Transit is thinking about creating a local-rapid variant, which is just basically further stops with some BRT elements - bus lanes, all-door access. This would replace the 6.

Somehow the Chase center is working. It appears that a lot of people are just walking. I wonder if BART figured an increase
Van ness BRT doesn't give percentage complete numbers anymore.

The process for how MTC plans to look into regional fare coordination. They have 6 steps and to be done in 12-18 months, and mere 600k for the research.
I find it funny that Atherton and Hillsborough have the lowest poverty rates.
Why Jarvis and anti-tax people are the worst. They are still holding up RM3 in the courts! The FASTER presentation is a lot more fleshed out.
San Francisco at least can keep the claim that they permit the most affordable housing.
