Car beats bus in Merc’s test of Monday morning BART-less commute chaos

Monday, July 1, 2013

Just how bad was the gridlock in the wake of the BART strike? The Mercury News did a little experiment this morning, sending out two reporters in a “race” between the Fremont BART station and downtown San Francisco—one by car, the other by bus. The result: The car won, with a time of 2:14 minutes, a full 34 minutes ahead of the bus. Grim.
