BART is the fifth-busiest heavy rail rapid transit system in the United States with nearly 340,000 people riding every weekday. The system is governed by a nine-member board of directors who are elected to vocalize their constituencies needs and concerns.

In November 2010, less than two years after the murder of Oscar Grant which put BART under much heat, voters went to the polls to elect a board member for district four.

Here the three candidates, Carole Ward-Allen, Robert Raburn and Monique Rivera, talk about what they think is the best way to maintain a safe transport system.
