It is time to reconsider transportation finance. The last thing we need right now is another bump in the sales tax. When the virus scare began, the congestion problem went away when companies began encouraging staff to work from home at least part of the time. Let's encourage more working at home when the virus scare is over. This tax would not be necessary if there were not as much demand.
We need to make sure this awful idea gets nipped in the bud. If you feel Caltrain must have more money despite increased working from home, please consider either diverting existing sales tax from the overpriced BART extension to San Jose (eliminate the Santa Clara portion) or raising taxes on the rich tech companies that are responsible for the congestion problem.
