#SiliconValley elites oppose #BART expansion

Screenshot 2017-11-23 at 08.31.55The fear over turning downtown San Jose into a business-killing construction zone has transit agencies fighting over how to dig a 5-mile tunnel that will bring BART to the heart of Silicon Valley.

So sad for the elites in Silicon Valley.

When the project is done by 2026 or so, BART trains will run all the way to Santa Clara, with three underground stations in San Jose.

All but 1 mile of the 6 miles of track that must be laid from the nearly completed Berryessa Station in northeast San Jose will be underground, much of it beneath Santa Clara Street, a main artery through downtown San Jose.

This is great news for regular people. It’s amazing the elites oppose it.
