some days, you just don't have it. not my uncle, though. he's taking trulicity for his type 2 diabetes and now, he's really on his game. once-weekly trulicity lowers your a1c by helping your body release the insulin it's already making. most people reached an a1c under 7%. plus, trulicity can lower your risk of cardiovascular events. it can also help you lose up to 10 pounds. trulicity is for type 2 diabetes. it isn't for people with type 1 diabetes. it's not approved for use in children. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, severe stomach pain, changes in vision, or diabetic retinopathy. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with sulfonylurea or insulin raises low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration, and may worsen kidney problems.

4:32 pm
area commute. there is no question. the pandemic devastated ridership. you just saw the numbers. why? who wants to write impact trains with strangers during a health crisis? not me. no one. that is the hill that b.a.r.t. has to climb to get writers back. have got to make them feel safe. b.a.r.t.'s general manager says that may mean more than clean trains. it may mean giving writers incentives to get back on board. >> welcome to rush-hour at b.a.r.t. station in oakland. normally, this platform would be packed with morning commuters on their way to work. that was before the covid-19 pandemic nearly stopped the b.a.r.t. trains in their tracks. it triggered an unprecedented drop in ridership that has the system currently averaging 15% of normal. on the upside, writing b.a.r.t. these days means everyone gets a seat and a parking spot. infects this lot is so empty there is room to practice tennis. bob powers is the general manager and he spent time with me walking through the stations, on the trains and talking through what is next for b.a.r.t.. >> i guess this parking lot says it all.

4:34 pm
>> there were complaints about b.a.r.t. before in terms of safety and cleanliness. now, you have got health concerns on top of it. >> i would say b.a.r.t. is ready. right now, the steps we have taken and the we are taking to encourage ridership to come back, one take away for me -- you, b.a.r.t. is ready. >> the covid slow down give them an opportunity to reset the problems. >> a year ago the biggest debate going on was that these gates weren't strong enough to keep people from jumping over them. now, the biggest challenge is getting people to come through them and pay. >> we have steps in place to do that. i encourage ridership to come back improving our safety and cleanliness of the >> right now as we speak? what is going on?
4:35 pm

4:36 pm
they don't have to get on the freeway. they don't necessarily have to get on b.a.r.t.. you have to make it more attractive for them to want to come here. >> that is right. i have to be more attractive than driving on the freeway. >> not just driving the freeway, that is an easy one to beat. you have to be more attractive than staying at home in some cases. >> or a balance thereof. >> okay. how do you do that? >> to me, it is being more attractive than driving. when people need to come into work, we are therefore them. the other opportunity we have, if you're not coming into work, what about off-peak and weekends? people wanting to a regular routine of life? there is an opportunity for us to get ridership there. >> to do that, people need to feel safe. because covid is spread through the air, being surrounded with people you don't know on a crowded train takes on a whole new meaning. safety starts with masks. >> now, in terms of masks, some people would
4:37 pm
to get on b.a.r.t. unless everybody is masked. the state may not require it but is b.a.r.t. going to require it? >> again, we will take our direction from the health professionals. i am not a medical professional. >> you can take direction from the health officials but you have to sell yourself to the public. >> that is just one sales pitch. the other is i am on time. i am reliable. i changed out the whole ventilation system. by the end of june, every single car has a new filtration system for air handling. >> what does the air filtration system do? >> it is all about breathing and transmission of particulates, right? we have these new filters go in. this air in this car will be circulated and changed out every 70 seconds. >> by the time you have left the station it is already changed? >> in a circulating around. that is the best we can do. that is industry best practice. >> you want this to be visibly clean?
4:38 pm
you're looking you are not looking so much for germs. it has to look clean? >> it has got to look clean and the air has got to be clean. >> to get think the public is ready to get on a crowded train without a mask even in six months? even in six months even if they are vaccinated? >> i do. our ridership is up. >> ridership is slowly picking up but in order to handle the reduced demand, b.a.r.t. had to reduce the operating hours and is currently only running trains every 30 minutes. powers hopes to increase service by this fall to a train every 15 minutes and also provide writers with writers wi trains to space them out. >> a part of the pandemic, there was talk about fair increases for b.a.r.t.. what is the story on >> we are not proposing a fair increase anytime soon. what we want to do is encourage riders to come back. i am going the opposite.
4:39 pm
in september i wanted to be on the lookout for some incentives. >> discounts? >> discounts. may be free fridays. maybe 50% off. something like that. something to bring writers back. i am going the opposite way. >> powers is also promising that when b.a.r.t. returns, it will not return to business as usual. the pandemic changed lives and changed the way we work. it looks like b.a.r.t. is in for some big changes too. >> and some ways causing b.a.r.t. to hit the reset or restart button. what kind of changes would you like to see from the old system to what comes back? >> yeah, i think we need to be more and more customer focused. we need to listen to our writers. i need to be the first option not getting in your car. i need to partner with the this remote work policy. we have got to do a better job of listening to our customour cm >> as terrible as the pandemic has been, this may be an opportunity for b.a.r.t. to get better. but, the question is, will the incentives work? willie encouragements work? will writers have to take a
4:40 pm
long and second look? úwe will that one. >> phil, thanks to you i now know where to go to practice my back and. to b.a.r.t.. plenty of court space of available but more seriomore seo can't imagine people writing b.a.r.t. if they don't have a mask. if the state removes the mask mandate, would b.a.r.t. remove it as well? >> i pressed powers on that and he said they were going to go by the health guidelines. also believes people will feel more comfortable as more people are vaccinated. i have a feeling that if somebody comes on, everything will be be be be be be be sneezes in a crowded b.a.r.t. train and then people will react. it is not just b.a.r.t.. it is caltrain. it is ac transit. it is muni. getting people back, the masks and mask transit, you
