IFL Headquarters is concerned for those affected (us) in the event of a BART strike. Millions if not billions of commuters depend on the BART daily to get to and from work, and for the past few days we have been anxiously awaiting news of an imminent strike. You’ve all heard of the alternatives- carpool, bus routes, ferry’s, piggybacking, yada yada yada. You want real options- and we’ve got them!
(Strap your board to the back of a ferry to save on time- you won’t have to wait for hundreds of irritable commuters to unload the ferry before you, you’ll be the very first one off!)
(Hop on the RocketBoat at Pier 39, with speeds of up to 150 mph (speed could not be confirmed at time of print) you’ll be across the bay in no time!)
3. Water Bike
(We calculated that this contraption would take you about two and a half hours to cross the bay with but that’s still three hours faster than if you were to leave your home in Walnut Creek at 5 am)
While none of these alternatives are ideal, they are still alternatives and we cannot ignore the fact that they exist. We just hope this back and forth ends soon between BART and their Union reps because honestly, this is no way to do business.
Oh boy, I could say volumes on unionism but not here. I hope this passes soon.
You’re preaching to the choir!! 😀
Hahaha! I like your ideas!
Haha, thank you!!
Is that Chris Cornell with the water bike?
I think it is!
Reblogged this on Just a little Brit.
This is beyond ridiculous. It would be kinda need to wakeboard to work. I’d prob fall in though.
