Living in the East Bay and commuting to San Francisco is not an easy task for anyone. On average my commute to SF State takes about an hour and a half.
My journey begins when I take a 8 minute drive to the North Concord BART station. The BART ride itself is a little over an hour. Once i get to the Daly City BART Station I usually get on the school shuttle which takes me straight to school. There are some days, I do take MUNI from the Daly City station if the shuttle takes too long.
My commute is a long and noisy one, but my higher education is worth it.
