Three reporters race through morning commute http://kalw.org/post/bike-train-or-automobile-three-reporters-race-through-morning-commute <p>It’s not just you. The morning commute is getting longer and longer. As the local economy picks up steam more and more people are getting in their cars, riding BART, and hopping on their bikes to get to work. This means everyone is spending more time on the road and most of us are doing it less comfortably. For car commuters - &nbsp;your drive time got about 25% longer in 2013. &nbsp;In San Francisco, nearly twice as many people are commuting by bike as in 2006. And BART - which is already packed - could have close to double its current ridership in the next few decades. &nbsp;</p> Tue, 29 Apr 2014 00:45:00 +0000 Ben Trefny & Ashleyanne Krigbaum & Jeremy Dalmas 43008 at http://kalw.org Bike, Train or Automobile?

He’s 38 years old. He works for a company that does sustainability consulting for corporations. He’s kind of outdoorsy. Whatever.</p><p></p><p></p><p>But if you met him before 7am, you’d definitely think he was unusual. For starters, you’d have to do what I did, which is drive down to the Port of Oakland before dawn and talk with him while he’s getting ready to launch his kayak into the Bay.</p><p></p> Thu, 07 Feb 2013 23:43:50 +0000 Casey Miner 22831 at http://kalw.org The best commute ever Today on Your Call: Why are more people biking to work today?
