Phoenix may be worse than the bay area, but at least Phoenix didn't spend nearly as much money for something that isn't very good.
BART isn't a monorail.
Stand corrected! Bay Area Rapid Transit is a train and according to Wikipedia its a heavy rail.
I should have known better on that since I used to ride on BART 12 years ago.
I used to pick up a bus on AC transit in Fremont either off of Mowry Ave or Stevenson Blvd by I-880 to take to the Fremont BART station.
I frequent the Oakland Coliseum and the Embarcadero stops.
It was 4 bucks each way to get from Fremont to the 1st 4 stops in SF after going through the transbay tube that started after the West Oakland stop.
I would think its gone up since then especially now that BART goes to SFO.
Ill take your word with what you said since you do live there.
