This Ain't No BART

A surprising link between DC and the SF Bay Area is the Metro system. Modeled on BART it has the same trains. But that seems to be the end of the similarity. The drivers run these poor trains with a heavy foot. Passengers are gracelessly bumped forward and back as trains randomly stop midstream or approach a station. Sorry, but Bay Area riders would never put up with this. DC riders just hunker down and read the paper.
