Here’s my current commute:
- Drive to North Berkeley Bart 11 minutes and park. $2.50/day
- Train BART to Fremont, 50 minute ride, $8 round trip
- Bus VTA 181 express to downtown San Jose, 40 minute ride, $0.00 with my SJSU pass ($8 round trip w/o)
- Walk 10 minute to class
It usually takes 2 hours, 30 minutes door to door.
The train/bus runs every 15 minutes like clockwork all day.
I always get a seat on the train, almost always a seat on the bus (the folks coming on the train from San Francisco sometimes have to stand)
I usually get about an hour of work done on the train with my laptop tethered to the internet on my phone. And I usually get just a bit carsick on the bus. :-(
