I took BART today for the first time in, well, ever. I am actually quite impressed. It was a smooth ride (maybe a bit loud at times), and it ran efficiently. My other experience is with CalTrain which I have used quite a few times. I vastly prefer either of those options over driving myself if I can help it, but the BART was much faster for a similar commute, and it felt faster too. Given that, I’ll probably take a pass on CalTrain until after the CalMod upgrade is complete for any work commuting I have to do, at least. Probably still the better option if I want to go to a ball game.
BART: I recommend it. 👍
