SF/SJ: Bay Area Transit Is Rapid


Getting around the Bay Area is remarkably easy, with or without a car (though with a car is better). Some observations:- VTA bus drivers will cheerfully cut you a break if you’re short on bus fare. (It’s kind of like the pay-what-you-wish policy at the Met.) I’m a little embarrassed to say that I was able to confirm this on three different trips in San Jose.- 4 in 5 SF Muni bus drivers don’t care at all if you have the correct fare or a valid transfer, so just get behind the white line already you damn tourist.- BART still looks more or less like it did in THX 1138.- I’m the only one not driving in the SF bus lanes.- Next time I’m in SF, I’m definitely riding the Milan streetcars on Market St. They’re beautiful and loud as heck.- I’m averaging one illegal u-turn per day in SF.(Fremont BART Station, CA)More SF/SJ:The Guest Cottage LifeI Visited The MothershipSpecial West Coast MICWYou Heard?Babe’s MufflersFlight To
