I RECENTLY APPLIED FOR THE PT TRAIN OPERATOR THAT BART OPENED UP A MONTH AGO. I PASSED THE WRITTEN EXAM (WOO-HOO BIG SURPRISE) IT WAS SUPER EASY. ANYWHO, THE NEXT STEP IN THE PROCESS IS THE *SITUATIONAL AWARENESS EXAM* WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? WELL I KNOW ITS SELF EXPLANATORY BUT CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT TO EXPECT???
Yesterday, I'm walking into Montgomery behind some BART workers, one of whom said the escalators were all broken because they can't take the exrement from homeless shitting on the escalators moving stairs. Wonderful. Feel sorry for the escalator guys who have to clean that crap up. Can't BART do something about this or does BART love paying for these recurring broken escalator issues. I thought the homeless were just pee'ing how gross to hear number 2 is the real problem with the BART escalators.
It must just be MISERABLE working for BART in some occupations.
The credit card associated with my card expired. I know I should have updated it earlier, but I just didn't need to do that since I wasn't even in CA at the time.
The website is being stupid and apparently you can't update this information over the phone. Awesome. Useless as usual.
This fine Bart patron was clipping her nails this morning. Clip, Clip, Clip.
Not quite as bad as poop on the escalators, but right up there! People are disgusting.
Yeeeeeah. I get that it's an experiment and I get that people need their bikes, but I don't see people waiting and not boarding a train because it's crowded. I've seen too many times where cyclists as usually their bikes as essentially a battering ram, to get onto a train and then hogging an entire seat by blocking it with their bike and the crowd.
I'm trying to identify all of the tracks on BART so I'm hoping that someone can help me with the questions below.
1) Which are the two stations at the end of the K-track?
2) I understand that the C-track runs fromm PSP to Rockridge.
So does "MP 20.0" for example mean that it's 20-miles from
Rockridge or is it 20-miles from the WYE?
3) Which track runs in the same direction as the C1 to
PSP, C3 or C4?
4) Where is the Y-track? Is that the SFO extension?
I took the written exam on Saturday, July 21 at Chabot College. HR mentioned that it would take about two weeks for the results. Fortunately, an e-mail was sent Friday, July 27 notifying me that I received a passing score. Next step is a "situational awareness exercise designed to test observational skills."
Does anyone have any insight or experience with this exercise that they could share? I'd appreciate any help.
You read that headline right.
When work crews pulled open a broken escalator in BART's Civic Center Station last month they found so much human s*** gumming up the gears that they had to call in a full haz-mat team.
Hey Guys Im in class at Mills College in Oakland, Ca. I took the Bart Train Operator exam on July 27, 2012 at the Kaiser Center Downtown Oakland as I was given extra time on the exam because I have a documented disibility. I really hope to pass this examination. I think I did quite well on this exam. I am keeping my finger crossed and praying to god that I passed......I will keep you posted on my results !!
I don't use BART as much as I used to as I have moved. But I still use transit in the Bay Area every couple months or so. Is it worth getting a clipper card? I usually use BART and Muni, would be convinent for Muni as not having to find singles, but what do you guys think?
A few days ago, I saw a fight break out between two full grown professionally dressed women over their position in line.
Most people know the unofficial rules of boarding rush hour trains - when a train comes along, those who do not board step aside for those boarding to get by. After everyone who will board leaves the line, those who did not board re-form the line using the honor system. People simply get back in the line in the same order, minus those who boarded the last train.
Unfortunately, this honor system does not always work and chaos ensues....
I know you probably don't read, and probably don't even know HOW to read. I know you probably don't have a computer, unless it was stolen. I know you thought it was funny to hold up the train by blocking the door for 10 mintues. And I know you probably thought it would be funny to throw your beer at my boyfriend. I know you probably even enjoy being a stereotype.
Thanks for all you've done to destroy the East Bay.
Here's to your overdose on alcohol and/or drugs!
A few weeks ago, my friend and I were headed home from San Francisco. I kept smelling smoke. I even asked the lady in front of me if something in her purse was on fire. She point to two animals hovering at the door to the next car (we were in the last car).
Why do some trains stop so suddenly and violently causing passengers to fall over (even passengers holding on while standing)? This seems like another medical emergency waiting to happen. I was standing on a train for Pitts/Bay yesterday around 5:30 p.m. when the train stopped so suddenly and violently (numerous times) between WOAK and MAC that even passengers holding on while standing fell over.
