BART is the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit – the San Francisco Bay Area’s public transport system – and, like most public transport systems; it’s oftentimes full of jerks and dummies.
The BART Idiot Hall of Fame is a way for riders who see said jerks and dummies to vent their frustrations in public, instead of just clenching their teeth and fists and shaking their heads.
You’ll see some pretty gross and stupid behaviour from a few idiots on this site: people carrying bowls of milky cereal, a dude sleeping in a hammock he set up on the train, people giving their shopping and skateboards seats, clipping their nails…
These are the people making sure that public transport maintains that nasty stigma. Gross.
