Approaching Day City

A train heads in to Daly City in this view.  The fare structure on BART is quite complex, and the cost to travel between far-off places is the highest on any heavy rail system in the country.  A single journey can wind up costing as much as $8.00, that highest fare being for travel between San Francisco Airport and Pittsburg/Bay Point. 

Passengers use a stored-value fare card for access to and egress from the system; it can be something of a shock to see the available balance go down after a ride through the Bay Area.
