After many calls from constituents on social media, with support from BART board director Rebecca Saltzman and Supervisor Matt Haney, whose district includes Treasure Island, East Bay Assemblyman Rob Bonta is considering a bill to add a bus-only lane to the Bay Bridge.

However, he is concerned not just for the logistical and construction tasks necessary to complete such a change. He is also concerned about the potential political fallout from drivers who commute across the bridge. Bonta has until the third week of February to introduce a bill and has stated he will know by the end of the month whether he wants to pursue a course of action.
