As a first revenue day rider of BART and SMART, I am aware of those issues. However, BART has recently inaugurated "eBart" which is also a standard guage DMU operation extending from their Pittsburg (no h) station further east to Antioch with cross platform transfer where the guage and equipment change. So, if the standard guage SMART route were extended to Richmond it would be a transfer point to both BART and the Capitol Corridor/San Joaquins/Amtrak.
As to the GG Bridge, my version is BART from San Rafael, across the bridge with routes splitting at Geary and 19th Ave. Geary route to downtown and under the bay in the second tube (being talked about though no explicit route, timing yet) and the 19th Ave tunnel down to link up with the existing route to continue via Daly City to SFO and Millbrae. This affords Marinites and the west side of SF direct rapid transit to the airport or commuting to Silicon Valley jobs without wasting time heading downtown first.
Why BART you ask, rather than Muni? Muni has punted building a line out Geary for 40 years; time for someone else to get it done, and we badly need a second tube.
