Open Sesame

BART train operators are so considerate, especially when you experience bus drivers who pass you at a stop. In the past few months I've had several occassions when the BART train doors have just closed as I am approaching, often with Ike the Bike in hand. Every time the operator has re-openened the doors for me. They really do look out for passengers before leaving the platform. It makes the whole system seem a little more human.

Writing about this because the BART train re-opened it's doors just now for a lady with a baby carriage. She was overjoyed.
