I'd like to know the current numbers for riders on the bart between 4AM and 6AM on Saturday and Sunday.

Once they have a baseline, if they do a month trial where they extend bart service until 2:30AM on Fridays and Saturdays, we'd have reliable metrics for which should be supported.

My belief is that ridership and overall cashflow would greatly increase if the time window that BART is closed on Fridays and Saturdays was shifted ahead 2 hours.

It's a great point. Perhaps the economic case needs to be made for BART to act.

One thing I also wonder after talking about this issue with friend in South Berkeley is if BART employees strongly discourage the hours expansion from happening simply because extending the hours later will likely make for more unpleasant (unsafe?) and challenging working conditions.
