This video encompasses the everyday experiences of Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART)
commuters – buying tickets, waiting on platforms, boarding and exiting trains.
Within this context several layers of information related to BART are portrayed.
They include: scenes from surveillance cameras and the master control room
displaying the progress of the trains throughout the system,
and a car driving from Berkeley to San Francisco crossing the
Bay Bridge while a train travels toward the tunnel beneath the Bay.
