- BART directors’ day at the troubled Powell Street station
By Michael Cabanatuan - Thursday Jul 13, 2017
Near the end of Thursday’s BART Board of Directors meeting, the transit system’s elected leaders found themselves in the unusual position of staring at something not listed on the agenda: a small, fresh puddle of urine. BART directors usually meet twice a month in a clean, quiet, windowless board chamber in Oakland, but this time they took a field trip to Powell Street station to view its “challenges” — homeless people sleeping in hallways, intravenous drug users, rundown conditions, dirty floors and elevators and escalators used regularly as restrooms. “You can see, there’s fluid at the bottom,” said Paula Fraser, assistant chief transportation officer for BART’s San Francisco and Peninsula lines. Maintenance workers try to clean up soiled elevators as quickly as possible, Fraser said, but the problem is so pervasive that they’d need to post a janitor at the elevators full time to ensure their constant cleanliness. Thursday’s tour was attended by 50 or so people, who strolled out of the station’s Hallidie Plaza exit past a panhandler on crutches, and up the escalator to Market Street, where they viewed the nearby Decaux public toilet and heard about city plans to move more portable Pit Stop toilets near BART stations. [...] they heard from merchants and tourism experts who said the Powell Street station’s deteriorated conditions are a drag on business. Jessica Lum, of the Hotel Council of San Francisco, said guests often comment on the station’s lack of cleanliness and feeling of safety, and that they don’t see police officers at the station. Later in the tour, they strolled down a hallway lined with people sprawled out and sleeping on the floor, and then gathered in the center of the station to listen to a talk about homelessness. Experts discussed plans that BART has to work with Muni and the city to help homeless people find the help they need, and eventually find a better place to sleep. “We’ll talk with them, work with them,” said Scott Walton, manager of emergency outreach and services for the city’s Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing. Another speaker was explaining a program to help keep low-level drug offenders out of jail, when a BART rider interrupted. Police Chief Carlos Rojas told him BART’s police department plans to increase its visibility in stations and on trains. Selhorst said later that he and his co-workers talk about how unsafe BART feels with aggressive panhandlers on trains and recent stories of robberies by gangs of youths.
