This is utter BS... Cell phones have been used and not until there some type of protest do they disrupt cell phone usage... I was there at the BART district in August... -.-

There is no law that states that transit agencies are required to provide cell phone service at stations and/or in tunnels along service routes. BART does it only as courtesy and convenience to riders. As such, it can choose to take away that courtesy and convenience as it deems necessary.

Provide??? What do you mean provide??? They aint providing anything,they are going out of their way to cut it off,which is a completely different story.

ACTUALLY, BART doesn't provide service, the carriers do, the carriers pay them rent for use. No different then anywhere else. Its like me leasing property for a tower then shutting them off because I don't like they provide service to someone or some group I don't agree with.

I don't see this any different then what the Syrian government is doing in banning iPhones.

Just as happened in Egypt,when the masses find new means to organize, the power structure finds a way to just push a button and turn everything off... Remember the "Free Speech Zones"???
