Do you ever travel to Northern California, Sam Francisco and the Bay Area? If so, make sure you familiarize yourself with the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train system.

You can travel easily throughout the Bay Area on the BART train. Here are some of the cities and places that are near BART train stops:

  • Sam Francisco
  • Daly City
  • Colma
  • Oakland

Some people take BART to and from work so they don’t have to drive on the roads and highways. This greatly reduced your stress every day.

Some people take BART to cultural events or places like museums. There is often no need to drive if you take the train.

Other people take BART to sporting events or games. Sometimes you may not be able to take BART directly to an arena, but the closer you get, the easier it can be.

Make sure to look up information about BART before you arrive. It will make things easier that way.

I currently use a Clipper card and all you do is place it near the reader when you enter and exit. You can add money to the card as you go, or you can set it to auto-load money.

The BART train system is a wonderful, easy and fun way to travel throughout San Francisco, Oakland, Fremont and the rest of the Bay Area. Give it a try.
