Two years after moving to Southern California from the San Francisco Bay Area, I finally stepped foot on public transportation again.
But it wasn’t in LA.
During a trip to the Bay Area this weekend to visit my family and attend my sister’s high school graduation, I hopped on BART.
BART has always been easy to navigate and relatively cheap — well, at least cheaper than it is to drive.
As I was riding the train to Pleasant Hill, I thought how pathetic I was for never riding Metrolink. Maybe I should spend less time complaining about high gas prices and more time planning my routes throughout Los Angeles on public transportation. But then, complaining is so much easier.
