Julian Mark from Mission Local reports that BART will be installing additional benches at the SW 16th/Mission BART Plaza:

“The former District 8 supervisor [BART Director Bevan Dufty] said he caught wind of some concerns that the [ping pong] table was installed instead of more benches, but he stressed that more benches will be coming soon, as fewer benches have — so far — replaced the number that had existed before the plaza was renovated. A ‘new style’ of benches are coming,’ he said.” (https://missionlocal.org/2018/12/ping-pong-table-appears-at-16th-street-bart-plaza-for-the-people/)
