Just yesterday, the BART Board of Directors approved an alternate funding plan for the controversial Oakland Airport Connector after being denied $70 million from the Federal Government. They said BART had violated civil rights laws by not considering the projects impact on the low-income communities that the project must go through. But like a petulant child who can’t take “no” for an answer, BART refuses to give up on this monorail. In every interview I see with them they appear to be unapologetic about every action. So that got me thinking, is BART winning the public relations battle and, more importantly, do they even care?
