Scrolling through @SFBART Twitter memory lane

When it comes to Twitter, we know our friends down the hall at @SFBART have some classic and memorable tweets. From brutally honest to downright hilarious, we decided to take a scroll down Twitter memory lane and share some of our favorite tweets. 

Remember that brutally honest tweet when time stopped and we all gasped?

@shakatron BART was built to transport far fewer people, and much of our system has reached the end of its useful life. This is our reality.

420 was a high for BART too, in terms of ridership. 

Ridership for 4/20 was almost 420,000 (it was 421,578 exits). That’s *high* for a Friday.

There once was a Gingerbread Man on BART, for real. 

The Gingerbread Man is riding BART this afternoon to spread holiday cheer and to hand out some swag. Sources tell us he’s en route to Civic Center. If you see him, take a photo with The Gingerbread Man and tweet at us! Thanks to @SFBARTable for inviting him to ride BART.

Who knew that leggings would be such an issue for some? BART allows them all. 

Leggings are always allowed on BART. Leather leggings, fishnet leggings, athletic leggings, you name it.

Nothing is cuter than a family dressed up as a BART map, train, fare gate, and Clipper card. 

This pretty much made our night.
