If you don’t live in San Francisco (hell, even if you do), you know getting around the Bay after a concert is pretty tough business. You’ve probably had to opt out of a show solely because of that.
BART is pretty reliable, but it usually stops running before the show you’re seeing is over. As anyone who has looked at NextMuni and seen a wait time of 75+ minutes before the next bus can tell you, MUNI is awful. Getting a ride can be pretty pricey. You’d think that more would be done to ensure that the city maintains an active nightlife, especially since it seems that transportation is one of the biggest issues plaguing the current scene.
But it’s not just for entertainment’s sake that transportation late into the night is important. Take it from graveyard shift nurses, security guards, janitors and tired students—anyone really who has been subjected to not having a good, safe way to get home after a long day.
It looks like someone up at the city government is finally taking this seriously. They’re conducting a survey to better understand the needs Bay Area residents have in regards to traveling around San Francisco, with a specific interest on the hours between 12am – 5am.
If that’s not enough of a reason to take the survey, here’s this: if you take the whole thing (and leave your email), you have a chance to win one of three Clipper transit cards with $50 loaded onto it.
