Surely this "train" you "work on" isn't BART close to rush hour anywhere near Montgomery station? I would love an hour-long commute on a train with a schedule you could roughly predict, with seats you could get more than 15% of the time, with some ability to connect to the internet, and with a reasonably low probability that someone will pee on you or stick you with a needle. BART, unfortunately, can guarantee none of those things. And I basically lived on it for about a year. I will never forgive the Bay Area for that.
The funny thing fun is, BART is HEAVEN compared to the 101 and the 80 as they approach San Francisco. I used to think LA traffic was bad. But sweet baby jesus, I'll take the 405 over I-80 approaching the Bay Bridge 10x out of 10.
