BART problems

BART's been having problems since Friday. Friday I was a half an hour late going home (got booted off the train at S. Hayward, then had to wait a million years for the next Fremont train to be allowed to leave the station), Monday and Tuesday there were slowdown issues at Union City, and then Tuesday I was stuck on the train right above Mowry. For 20 minutes.

For those of you who may not know Fremont, Mowry is a major street next to the BART station. Being stuck on the train above Mowry means I was less than 10 seconds into the station. But there were switching problems at the Fremont station, so there I sat watching the cars drive by in both directions.

When BART goes bad, it goes very bad.
