From the editor
I’ve rode BART for school field trips, A’s games, and family trips for as long as I can remember, but I think it’s funny that my partner — who was born + raised in ESSJ — just started getting the hang of things when she began commuting to her SF-based job. But I get it, it’s not her fault that BART... took some time to get here.
