It's amazing what can happen on a typical BART journey. One minute, you're gazing out the window pondering life — and the next, someone is cussing at the top of their lungs, sneezing in your face and refusing to turnover their seat to a senior.
But now, thanks to social media and the prevalence of smartphone cameras, there is nowhere to hide for the worst BARTiquette rule breakers. The "BART Idiot Hall of Fame" is a Facebook group dedicated to "outing" the most impolite and downright strange BART riders, providing a place for venting, sharing pictures and relaying stories. The group has more than 1,800 members so far.
There are plenty of complaints about seat hoggers, door rushers and bicyclists, as well as a few tales of the weird and wonderful world of a BART ride. Some recent highlights include:
- A picture of a man relaxing in a hammock that he had hung from the railing
- A picture of a couple of intoxicated men praying to the BART Gods, post-vomit
- A picture of a man watching pornography on his video-enabled device during the morning commute
