BART http://kalw.org en Bike, Train or Automobile? 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?
