Free Ride


So today was the first Spare the Air day this summer, and that means everyone on Bay Area public transit got to ride for free (it's a new experiment and supposedly the largest such program in the country).

I enjoyed not paying this morning, but I couldn't really tell if the train was fuller than normal. Maybe a little. (There was an unfortunate moment when I was crumpling up my plastic newspaper bag and it exploded loudly, but fortunately I was not shot to death by British police.)
