Tom Radulovich is BART's Vice President.John McPartland, the new president of the transit agency’s elected board of directors, has made it his mission to extend BART to this East Bay suburb of 80,000, which is home to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratories. ...
“It’s just not the best use of a billion and a half dollars, especially with our capital needs,” said Mr. Radulovich. “Some of it’ll end up coming out of funds that otherwise would have gone to the maintenance and rehab, system capacity, seismic safety and car replacement.”
However, the former mayor of Dublin, CA, Linda Jeffery Sailors, successfully got BART to change its Livermore-extension plans from a 11-mi, $3.8-billion, downtown-Livermore one to a 5-mi, $1.2-billion, I-580-only one with a station in west Livermore, likely at I-580 and Isabel Ave. But it could still be extended further eastward later on.But supporters from Livermore say that BART owes them an extension, because they have been paying taxes to support the agency since its inception.
