BART
(Presenting Partner)
If you rode BART to the Bruns, then you’re already in the know. You know that BART is more than the train that takes you to and from work. You know there is a great, big Bay Area out there, and you can ride BART to thousands of destinations, like Cal Shakes. Or that trendy restaurant that just opened downtown. There are so many fun places to visit by BART, we created an entire website around it. Visit bart.gov/bartable for weekly contests, discounts, events, stories and more. While you’re there, sign up for our entertainment newsletter, BARTable This Week, for exclusive deals and contests.
