I'm still chuckling at how stupid this new "rule" to curb trouble makers sounds when it's actually read out loud. You mod cutcan't make this stuff up.

i laughed my ass off.

BART is the best place for a bum to ask for $$. they go from car to car.
the rules will never happen. it'll be considered discrimination on something/someone.

I would be curious to see how they go about implementing/enforcing these bans. And I agree, OP, how does one only get banned after defecating three times within a 90 day period?!
Public defecation is a bizzarely common complaint in the Bay area. It comes up in conversation here on a fairly regular basis and everyone seems to have a story and gripe to share on the topic.

Admittedly, it's only really a problem on BART. I've never heard of human feces shutting down any other major metro rail system before.
