Bay Area Rapid Transit (California/San Francisco) statement
"Organizers planning to disrupt BART service on August 11, 2011 stated they would use mobile devices to coordinate their disruptive activities and communicate about the location and number of BART Police. A civil disturbance during commute times at busy downtown San Francisco stations could lead to platform overcrowding and unsafe conditions for BART customers, employees and demonstrators. BART temporarily interrupted service at select BART stations as one of many tactics to ensure the safety of everyone on the platform."
When the occupation of Wall Street happens, will we be faced with this situation on a larger scale? If we end up losing our communications like so, what would be an alternate plan?
