  1. You missed the BART stops at 16th st, 24th st, Glen Park, and Balboa Park, there are 8 stops inside San Francisco, not 4.

  2. What a poorly produced video! It tries to be helpful but the info is disorganized and hard for anyone not familiar with the geography of SF to comprehend. The video clips are unrelated to the commentary. There are a host of better videos that explain the transit systems in SF. Subscribe? Heck no!

  3. Their workers are affirmative action lazy slobs, they suck and hopefully their families get AIDS. I'm sorry, but I've never seen bus and train drivers behave so poorly, like whiny lazy retarded children. If they all disappeared tommorrow the world would be better off. All the shit they give people just trying to get to work is absurd, fucking leeches on society that deserve whatever they get.
