I think it would be so cool if San Francisco could implement something like this on our BART system. A lot of us use public transportation to get to and from work, and work while we're riding BART -- so this would be a great service for the city to provide. San Francisco should be as tech-savvy and as ahead of the curve as NYC!

Agreed!

I wholeheartedly agree that BART should have WiFi, and according to the articles on the bottom, it will! Although most people will have to pay, it is a big step towards making our public transport system much more tech savvy. I have seen several public buses in other cities that contain WiFi, so implementing it on BART seems like a pretty neat idea.
