My BART experience today was incredible. I missed my usual train but 1 minute later, an near empty train arrives with clean new floors and clean plastic seats! No one was waiting on the platform since the previous train had just departed. I walked in, sat down across 2 seats (since it was empty!) and even stretched out my legs!
The train operator was loud and clear, the train even made up time and arrived right on time as if I didn't miss a previous train, and the train never got crowded.
It was the best BART experience I've ever had! Now I know this probably won't happen again but it was nice to walk right in to an arriving train, have plenty of empty and clean seats to pick from, have enough room around me to relax and extend my legs, hear a TO who can speak clearly, and have the train arrive right on time!
Was I dreaming? (No, but it sure seemed like one)
