24th St BART Escalator Update:
No escalating. But a new sign!
Hey, wait, July’s almost August. Aaahh, I see, this memo is actually from May.
Anyway, I’m guessing we’ve passed the point of a “minor” repair? I say we just skip this escalation and implement Futurama-style pneumatic tubes. Though if this continues, the flux could build up to such a level that some passengers might enter a vortex and find themselves back in an alternate 1960s where we had BART hovercraft.
UPDATE: Mission Loc@l reports that there’s an oversensitive sensor to blame:
The escalator is back in service most of the time but there is a sensor that stops the escalator if a certain weight is exceeded. Technicians have made some adjustments to make the device less sensitive. Hopefully, that will work and will keep the escalator in service.
