I've mentioned frequently on FFL when discussing transportation in our modern age how Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a joke. Now even BART admits it: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/03/18/us/bart-talks-back-agencys-twitter-account-responds-to-user-complaints.html
Seemed like a cool idea back in the day (1960s) but it failed to keep up with changing times and was difficult and expensive to expand. The new problem (only a few miles from where I live) will wind up putting more cars on the road and probably make the Bay Area look like Los Angeles. Seattle's monorail was supposed to be the "wave of the future" back in 1962 but all it has ever been was a novelty ride between downtown and the Seattle Center.
