In about a month, you can officially get your TransLink card for BART. According to SFGate, "testing of the regional TransLink fare card on BART appears to have had no major glitches, providing a shot of good news for a project that has been hampered by years of delay." Come May 8, riders will get to test out TransLink for BART. Which, of course, is fantastic news. "It will be a major milestone once TransLink is operational on BART," chirped Ann Flemer, deputy director of operations for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission.
What with TransLink available for use on AC Transit, Golden Gate Transit, Golden Gate ferry, and (finally!) Muni, BART and Caltrain (which is currently testing the system with employees) are the final two feathers in its cap. Find out more about how you can get your own card over at TransLink.org.
