    I was on a train back from Oakland to SF around 11am today and found this fascinating character in one of the seats. Didn't budge for the almost-hour I was in there. Of course he/she/it wasn't considerate enough to leave some room for someone to sit next to it.
    Reminded me of the good ol' days riding that piece of shit SEPTA in Philthadelphia.

    If I have to work in downtown Chicago I always jump on the train. I hate driving in rush hour traffic , and I don't have to worry about parking. But I have seen this before. (and I've fallen asleep on the train too.)

    I take the "L" from ORD to downtown Chicago and it's not half-bad.

    It seems to be the transportation method of choice for drunk reggies and stinky bums. :nocheer:

    My train to the city is fine. Almost always on time and clean. Can't complain.

    BART is pretty cool... You don't need a car in the Bay Area...

    Go Bears!

    That's what I'm talking about. Now all he needs to do is go take a piss on one of the seats.

    I see this on the BART trains all the time. Its a real piss off when they do it when its packed during commute. Some people have zero respect for anyone else while demanding respect for themselves.

    You must not take BART regularly or live in the bay area. BART is overpriced, filthy, broken down half the time, run by lazy union workers who are grossly overpaid and will just shut down the whole system if they don't get these way overpriced paychecks. Also it barely goes anywhere in the bay area. Its not like the NYC subway were you can go anywhere.

    In DC I didn't need a car. The red line on the Metro was awesome. Things went downhill from there.

    I have used public transportation exactly once in Atlanta and I really thought rape / murder was a possibility :wtf:

    I don't love it but, it's convenient to get from the valley to downtown LA fairly quickly.

    Fuck BART. I rode down from the city to the peninsula recently. The king of all maniac bums got in the same car on Market Street. Halfway home I hear this loud, repeating, sound...like short bursts of air shooting out of a hose, over and over. I thought something was wrong with the train. I noticed there were no people around me all of a sudden. I look back and I see terrified people cowering back against the last few rows, the maniac bum is the one making the noise. He was forcing snot and air out of his nostrils furiously, that was the noise! I was sick to my stomach. I don't know what the fuck he was doing...maybe his version of a chemical attack??? never again.

    Was he chinese? I dont know why but ive seen tons of old chinese guys on bart blowing their noses all over everything and spitting everywhere. They act like its perfectly normal just to spit on the floor of a BART train. It really is mind blowing.

    I take the lightrail almost every day and I love it. And I was really impressed with and enjoyed the Metro when I was DC.

    It was a black guy. He did it for 20 minutes straight. It was really bizarre and gross. It was like the sound you hear from the air hose filling up your tires, but non stop. He was intentionally trying to kill us I think.

    Both the the busses and trains are rather nice in Colorado. The bus from boulder to Denver is coach style, and the in city busses are clean and nice. My only problem is that it isn't all that cheap and takes at least 3x as long as driving yourself.
