Certainly that was the dream at #65 Market St (later #1)--the SP HQ.
Yes JM and Mike Healy the BART flack think it is the LIRR--but if you look at ridership patterns, the SF CBD commute is only part of the story, and the Berkeley station is in the top use ##s because of the University which means students/faculty/staff/ who live all over. Further, there is large intra SF ridership where BART clearly is a subway.
So, a completely isolated, fenced, system w/ATO,OPTO, barrier fare control, is rapid transit in my book.
