BART board to review cell phone policy

More than a week after Bay Area Rapid Transit (CA) shut down cell phone service to quell a threatened protest, the controversy over the agency’s actions continues. As officials brace for more planned protests today, the board has scheduled a meeting this week to consider developing a policy that defines when (if ever) the agency may shut down wireless access. “This shouldn’t be about inconveniencing passengers,” said board President Bob Franklin. “Protesters want a policy change, and we should have that discussion in the proper forum.” The public will have an opportunity to comment on proposed policy changes.
