Best BART Performance Art 

Rat on BART Escalator

There is so much free entertainment to be had on BART that we'd never judge you for riding it around on Friday night just for the show. Among the many delights we see while on BART: talented turf-dancers, morbidly obese pigeons pigging out, naked acrobats, passengers humping BART seats, passengers humping each other in BART seats, and commuters stun-gunning each other for fun. But if silent movies and dramas are more your genre, then you'd probably enjoy watching the famously solemn street rat try over and over again to run his way off the transit escalator. The little guy was busted on camera, and soon his dark tragedy became one of BART's greatest comedies.
