When We Were Cars


By Sarah Phelan

Somehow I assumed public transit would remain free for a week, after Sunday's meltdown. Silly me.
Never mind headlines about yesterday's commute, warning that "Monday was easy--but that won't last."
Today, we're back to paying for ferries, buses and BART--a move that will likely get commuters back into their car--and into traffic jams. Makes perfect (non) sense to me. Either way, I'm gonna keep on enjoying the brilliance of not driving, which feels a bit like this photo of traffic on the Bay Bridge, which is titled the "Traffic jam I wasn't in."
