Even BART Agents Are Grossed Out, Terrified by BART (Video)

Posted By on Mon, Jun 3, 2013 at 9:00 AM


You think your BART ride gets your gag reflexes going? Try working there for eight hours a day.

All your worst nightmares that take place during your 30-45 minute commute on BART -- pooping passengers, angry drunks, dudes with knives, etc. -- are just another day at the office for BART agents. Upset by the seemingly nonstop violence and bathroom habits, BART workers, specifically members of the ATU 1555, released this video titled "The Video BART Politicians Don't Want You To See."

It's not necessarily eye-opening, since we all know that the transit station is about as sanitary and savory as a trip to a Portta Potti. Still, it's always nice to have a graphic refresher that illustrates how unsafe and unsanitary public transit has become.

Have a gander at these employees' experience (note: don't eat while viewing):

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
