Giants fans leaving the city following the World Series parade on Halloween.

Getting out of San Francisco Friday afternoon may be a giant challenge for Giants fans leaving the World Series parade. BART and the other transit agencies beefed up service to accommodate fans and commuters alike.

BART was prepared to carry hundreds of thousands of fans to and from San Francisco. It ran its rush hour service all day using every available train. BART also added a hundred extra workers at stations to help riders.

A lot of people told us, the morning commute into San Francisco was smooth. But one woman said her ride from Walnut Creek was a nightmare. She compared it to being on a Japanese bullet train.

Other transportation services also tried to meet the demands of the parade.

MUNI added six metro shuttles.

The Golden Gate ferry extended its morning service and the ferries at Larkspur were "load and go", which meant they were leaving once they were filled.

But it was BART that most people chose to use.

The evening commute started immediately after the parade. While many fans were leaving the city, there are many coming in for Halloween night and Critical Mass Friday.
