BART – Money Photo Day 21

BART - Bay Area Rapid Transit

One of the things that I miss most about Japan is their efficient public transportation system. There is absolutely no need to own a car in Japan. The same can’t be said in the US. When I do go to San Francisco, I try to take the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system as much as possible. While it doesn’t compare to Japanese public transportation for convenience and scheduling, it does save me money compared to driving to the city and trying to find parking.

  1. Is there any country in the world that can compare to Japan’s rail system? I don’t particularly like driving, so I will miss the trains when I move back to Australia.

  2. What’s so special about the transporting system in Japan? Why is so efficient? Why can’t we copy them in the US and Canada?

  3. i’m sure that when oil is as expensive as it is in the rest of the world, the U.S. will start using mass transportation. Until then, soccer moms still rule the road with their SUV’s.
