I was on the very last Bart out of SF recently, after midnight, and I assumed it would be a ghost train. Wrong. It was packed to the gills. And it was a Tuesday, not Friday or the weekend. Rapid transit works. I understand some less efficient forms of public transit are not as busy as Bart, but there's no way any portion of it should be cut.
