The purpose of this site is to create a community for BART riders who are willing to share good and bad experiences. Through this site we are hoping to share with other riders/employees and let our voices be heard to BART management that BART is important to commuters. We highly believe BART can improve their system and service by correctly utilizing our hard earned fare. We support BART because it cuts down on pollution and helps our environment. Please spread the word to other BART riders. Happy BARTing!!!

How will New Year's service be?

Will it be free past a certain hour? I know that Caltrain is offering free rides after 8 PM on NYE, but their trains were crush-load status! Do you think paying for BART (at least fro) would be worth it?

Bedtime for The Book Ends

OK now that there appears to be a final contract settlement, can we get rid of the two circus clowns that f d up this whole process. Not only do these tons of fun ignore reading anything before signing, but the brought shit ass attitude to the process and destroyed any goodwill past or present. The worst two folks to be in charge of a transit system imaginable. Seriously Board members, look at the damage done publicly to the District over what.............. basically a cost of living increase which the employees where deserved of.

Dear Santa, So about those dirty elevators...

WSB-TV - Atlanta

ATLANTA —

The city of Atlanta is looking to clean up the image, and the odor, of its transit system.

Many of its elevators have doubled as restrooms and smell like it. That's about to change with first-of-its-kind technology which catches "offenders" literally -- with their pants down.

"The smell hits you so bad. You hold your breath just to hurry up and get off the elevator," said Alicia Porter, a rider on a Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) train.

Train Operators and the Blue Blanket

Just saw a post that someone was complaining that the blue blanket (cab curtain) was obstructing their view at the Operator. What that's for is to cut the glare from the lights on the windshield so we can see outside in the tunnels and at night.

I have nothing to say about the Strike BS, you don't like it, you don't like what they pay us, you want a better living for yourself and your family (like the rest of us) then get a better job.

As far as the banning of bartarded....good riddance...he/she/it is an asshole.

Is it just me?

Or is BART a lot more crowded the last three weeks? I've been way further back in the parking lot than usual, and it's been standing room only on BOTH ends of my commute for the last three workdays. I don't remember the holidays affecting the commute this much in the past, but that seems to be the only explanation. Did they lose a train or something? Check under the mat, maybe there's a spare under there somewhere.

A Social Network for BART Rides

So, I know what we're all *really* worked up about are the more rage-inducing problems like late trains, inconsiderate people, etc. But I've been curious about other angles that can be taken in terms of making BART a better experience, and I have one I'd like to share with you all.

Bart Fares

It seems as if BART raises fares each year. Has it ever reduced fares before?

What Happened to BARTTARDED?

I MISS HIM. SERIOUSLY, HE STOOD UP FOR THE PEOPLE MOST IMPORTANT TO BART, THE RIDERS. YOU PEOPLE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES, ESPECIALLY THAT "TRAINOPERATOR9" IDIOT. FUCK YOU, WHY WEREN'T YOU BANNED TOO? EVEN YOU PORTRAY YOURSELF AS A ROBOT IN YOUR PICTURE. SUITES YOU WELL AND WHATEVER "WORK" YOU DO TO STEAL YOUR BLOATED SALARY.

BARTTARDED KICKED TRAINOPERATOR9'S ASS IN EVERY POST. I THINK IT'S SAFE FOR ME TO SAY THAT EVERYONE HERE HATES TRAINOP9. GET THE HELL OFF THIS PLANET!

Does anyone know why UC Bart doesn't allow people to pay their parking later?

Here is my story... My hubby called me this morning and asked me to go pay the parking for his car since the machine he was inputting didn't work and he needed to catch the train. When I arrived to the Bart (10 mins after his call) and explained to the agent about my situation, she just pointed me to sign on the window that "this is the rule to not paying your parking ticket late"

I have no idea why this rule exists. The agent has already assumed me helping my hubby's parking ticket late. But even if people purposely paying late (which is not in my case), we still pay for the parking.

Board of Directors may turn down contract

Montgomery train at 6:30 this morning smelt like its breaks were burning

Well, no one wanted to tell the T.O. since that of course would stop the train.. Way to keep the schedule people.

Holiday Schedule?

Gotta love Bart for operating on a holiday schedule today during rush hour. Trains every 15 minutes on a "holiday" that everyone outside of schools, banks, and government employees work on. After waiting 15 min for the PBR/SF train to arrive and not one person in a line of 20 could get on, I decided to drive to the city. Even the T.O. was shaking his head about what a mess it was.

to the t.o. who had the 11:18 out of Montgomery last night

you were awesome through that whole nasty delay last night. i appreciate you! I'm checking the paper now to see if there is anything about last night's incident in the news. Will BART ever normalize?

BART is not a freight train!

Why must people insist on bringing such large amounts of luggage?!?! Train wasn't quite SRO but still...
