Last call on BART

From our Audiograph series:

Unlike other metro systems, BART shuts down for several hours a day for routine maintenance. That likely won’t change unless they build another track under the Bay. Meaning if you don’t get into the Embarcadero station by 12:27 a.m. you’ll have to find another way across the Bay. And, this isn’t your quiet-but-crowded morning commute.

The last train can feel like all the after-parties in the Bay rolled into one.

"Every walk of life is here. I think it's the most diverse cross-section of the Bay Area -- at least youth -- that you are likely to see." -ANTONIO DE WOLK
