Human poop breaks down BART escalators

The escalators at the Civic Center BART [1] have been operating poorly for the past few months. The cause? Shit. Literally.

The Huffington Post [2] reports:

“When a repair team opened up one broken escalator in June, they discovered such a large treasure trove of human feces they had to call in a hazardous materials team to handle the situation.”

You read that right folks: a hazard team was needed for the job. That’s how much crap there was.

The total price tag for fixing various broken BART escalators? 200,000 big ones. Who ever knew cleaning up poop could cost that much?

Moral of the story: take the stairs.
