The San Francisco/Bay Area comes together for Halloween, and all the freaks come out even more than usual. This year, however, there’ll be another opportunity for community for those celebrating in San Francisco but traveling from the East Bay: a BART commute. Our lovely bay bridge, part of which is in the process of being replaced, has developed a potentially dangerous flaw and so must be shut down for a time, and at the height of our traditional revelry. Taking public transportation is good for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is running into people you know. It’s community, and that’s what we’re all about.
