The public transportation in the Bay Area is as diverse as the people. I have ridden BART, the historic cable car, CalTrain and Muni (light rail and trolley, no bus). I just wish the system was better. The one thing I like about BART is that you are able to check for times online (this comes in very handy when you have to catch so many 6:25 a.m. flights out of Oakland International). Other than that the City by the Bay’s public transit is a little lackluster (especially having just come from Portland – TriMet is very good). Nothing will ever beat NYC’s public transit (definately my favorite system, though, I do love Boston and its “T”). What is your favorite public transit system.
