Somebody BARTed

Right up there with my obsession with public libraries is my love of public transport. I think the combination of riveting reading materials, techy gadgets and 9 years in New York City made me loathe actually having to drive myself anywhere. I'm always tossing the keys to one of the kids and begging them man the wheel. The fact that their feet don't reach the pedals is the only thing keeping us stuck in the garage.

So when BlogHer was kind enough to provide step-by-step instructions on how to take BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) from the airport to the hotel, I was up for the adventure. And it proved so accessible and easy that also hopped aboard for the round-trip to my interview and plan to do it again tomorrow morning for a visit to the Farmers Market.

I finished up a book, gazed out the window and helped save the environment. Not bad for $5.35*.

*Fare from SFO to Powell Street USD.

I've only had access to public transportation during one period of my life, but I too LOVED it. It was so nice to just sit back and do what I wanted w/ that time instead of having to use my brain, my foot, my hands and my middle finger..

Good for you! I lived in NYC for 3 years, and didn't really miss my car much.

Found your blog via Mrs. Blogoway.

How is BlogHer going? I'm a little jealous that you're there!
