Officers detained a male (Rohith MAHANTY, 23, San Mateo) for fare evasion and found that he was intoxicated in public. Mahanty was arrested and was booked at the SF County Jail.
"Safe and welcoming". She's feels the need to issue a statement that all ethnicities are welcome on Bart, as if someone complained that they were denied entry to Bart because of their ethnic background. Has that ever happened once in 50 years? Alicia Trost: we know people from all over the world ride on Bart. They always have ridden Bart. Now how about keeping the criminals (of all ethnicities, of course!) off of Bart?
Mr. Mahanty is welcome on BART. "Our Board of Directors passed a Safe Transit Policy in 2017 to send a clear message to the public and our riders that BART is a safe and welcoming system for all people," Alicia Trost/BART spokeswoman had stated and reiterated on 3/16/2018. "The policy states in part 'the strength and vitality of our riding community and our employees come from our rich diversity of cultures, experiences and faiths, and we celebrate that diversity.'" Unfortunately, the BART Board of Directors did not mention, that both fare paying and fare evading passengers are welcome on BART. Ms. Trost also neglected to mention this. Oversight?! Purposeful neglect?! You the fare paying BART captives, I mean passengers be the judge, thank you.
