How healthcare is regulated, funded, and provided, is what distinguishes between developed countries from developing and undeveloped countries. Plenty of countries where gov doesn't regulate or fund healthcare where they will leave you dying if you don't have cash for care.

The map doesn't show the Amtrak long distance route or the San Joaquin. They're intercity in nature, rather than regional.

If you put everything together (local and regional rail, regional bus, ferry) the coverage is quite broad.

Better than VTA in San Jose, which passed a sales tax at the same rate as LA and at the same time but is planning to cut bus service.

There's plenty if mixed mode systems that put everything operated by agency on 1 map (LA, Denver, Cleveland, MBTA, SEPTA). Denver is different because its FRA lines are treated like LRT due to similarity in freq and fare. Most agencies separate due to local vs regional coverage.

A row of LED not showing that differentiates between 8 and 0.

Sacramento has Connect Card, BA has Clipper, LA has TAP, and San Diego has Compass. Could have 1 card for all and systems in between.

The air brakes qualification is the most essential and has the highest risk for failing (considering the edu level of a typical commercial driver), and has a separate written test and driving test. I say this because I have CDL w/pax and air brakes, but drive a shuttle bus.

When someone who operates luxury resorts and has access to chefs decides to treat a champion team to fast food, that says a lot about his character.

They may have Class B CDL with pax endorsement, but not the same CDL that would qualify them to drive larger buses. Larger buses have air brakes that has a separate qualification.

They also want to have end of line train storage, which they do have with this design.

They did that because the original Pittsburg/Bay Point wasn't built as a transfer station and that design would avoid having to widen the freeway median or make people change level to change trains.

How is it a win? Muni and Chariot both are operating at a loss. The difference is that Muni is taxpayer funded so not subject to business decision to terminate. Not all Chariot riders were or will become Muni riders so quite a few would drive or take TNCs.

I know that it is easy to pick on GoPass, but it is a reliable revenue and probably cheaper than individual riders buying passes with Clipper, as Gillett complained. There are some low income workers at these companies using pass too.

Didnt VTA had a sales tax passed a couple of years ago? They always complaining of not having money, but keeps throwing more money into the pit.

Caltrain is a fixed cost system if bring more low income riders into the system is a good thing. VTA is just complaining about doing the right thing because of its mismanagement.
