    Actually, this problem has probably been going on forever and I just wasn't aware of it.

    How does poop gets under an escalator? Was that poop not smelling? There must have been a lot of corrosion for the escalator's gears to malfunction.

    Those elevators never work.  Most of the stations are open air the temps at night during the summer are usually in the 40's and 50's and the ocean breeze keeps them smelling OK. If it were anywhere humid it would be horrific.  It is quite amazing hiking a bicycle up flights of stair when the escalators don't work. 
    People do amazing things.  A thrift shop I really like had to remove their dressing room curtain because someone crapped in there. California is just special sometimes.

    From the news coverage I saw, there are a lot of homeless people in the BART stations and for some reason they are not able to use the public restrooms...
    They interviewed some homeless and some non-homeless people and that's what they all said.

      "lack of public bathroom facilities" is the problem. Closing bathrooms at night don't make sense. We need more public bathrooms everywhere. Or this is what you get. It a health issue and should be addressed as such.

      for a man it's easy - but for a woman who needs to change her tampoon ..........
