I'm a starving student living in Berkeley (SF is too expensive) and need to take the BART five days a week to CCSF. I have to pay $7 a day to ride the BART to and from school, this adds up to $140 a month! This is an insane price for public transit which should be cheaper than other options. Why is there no discounted tickets for college students who need to commute into the city?
At this point I'm considering getting the senior citizen tickets and eating the fine when/if I get caught because it will still work out to being cheaper than buying the normal tickets!
