Describing traffic along Interstate 80 as “hellish” is definitely not an understatement.

Bay Area Rapid Transit District 7 director Zakhary Mallett thinks the road could be a lot less congested by sending BART tracks and trains all the way to Hercules.

“The section between Highway 4 and the Bay Bridge and for some reasons, we’ve been bringing BART extensions everywhere, except where data shows it’s needed,” Mallett told FOX40.

For a class of super-commuters who live in Solano County, a BART stop in Hercules, 7.5 miles closer, could be just the push they need to get off the road. 

“If they were to move a station to Hercules, I would gather signatures. I would help. Volunteer to gather signatures for that,” commuter Jason Richards told FOX40.
