San Francisco is struggling with a surge of homeless people seeking shelter inside San Francisco International Airport.
San Francisco International Airport welcomes the world to the City by the Bay, but the airport said homeless people have discovered the airport as a temporary shelter; especially in the early morning hours after the last BART train has pulled into the airport. An airport official said they’re working on a short term and long-term solution
Officials said their contacts with homeless people has surged; the airport already working to get them move along.
“We might make SamTrans tokens available to them,” said San Francisco International Airport Spokesperson Doug Yakel. ” We might, if they’re eligible, transport them to a nearby homeless shelter, if BART is still running we can give them a token to a BART train.”
