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? Three reporters race through morning commute Getting to San Francisco the old-fashioned way http://kalw.org/post/getting-san-francisco-old-fashioned-way <p></p><p>The BART strike earlier this week left a lot of us scrambling to find a way from point A to point B. To get where we needed to go, we stood in casual carpool lines, boarded unfamiliar buses, and braved brutal traffic on overloaded bridges. But not everybody got to work on wheels.</p><p> Fri, 25 Oct 2013 00:53:51 +0000 Julie Caine 5890 at http://kalw.org Getting to San Francisco the old-fashioned way Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Alameda Ferry http://kalw.org/post/audiographs-sound-week-alameda-ferry <p></p><p><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 1.5;">All week long&nbsp;we've been playing you this sound, and asking&nbsp;you to guess what exactly it is and where exactly in the Bay Area we recorded it.</span></p> Fri, 01 Mar 2013 01:30:00 +0000 Julie Caine 23766 at http://kalw.org Audiograph's Sound of the Week: Alameda Ferry All kinds of ways to get around the Bay http://kalw.org/post/all-kinds-ways-get-around-bay <p>For some people, the daily commute will get a little easier this week. Monday morning, a new ferry service between the Oakland, Alameda, and South San Francisco opened. In San Francisco, regular service resumed on the MUNI&rsquo;s N Judah and J Church lines, after ten days of repair work at some of the city&rsquo;s busiest transit junctions. Statewide, however, things aren&rsquo;t so bright. A new poll shows that voters are losing faith in plans for a high-speed rail system in California.
