While having to go through all the rigmarole of hopping on Caltrains and being at the least fifteen minutes late kind of sucks, what really chaps our hide is that we have a monthly pass for SamTrans but not one for Caltrains. So in having to suddenly buy a ticket, we have to shell out another $2 on top of all the rest of the money we shell out. And yes, we can afford $2, but if you factor in the fact that BART is late about once a week then it starts adding up. Factor in all the other expenses we have to do over the year to deal with pub trans and it's a lot of bucks. So here's our little Modest Proposal to all the department heads of our Public Transportation system: you screw up, you reimburse us.
