So we sent four ABC7 staff members from San Francisco to the Downtown Berkeley BART Station, which is about a 12 mile journey. One person took AC Transit, another BART, a third tried to hop into a Casual Carpool and ABC7 News reporter Lyanne Melendez drove.
Follow all the different ways here to see which was the fastest.
And follow our journey below and on Twitter to see how long it takes us to get from San Francisco to the Downtown Berkeley Station via regular driving.

Stuck in traffic approaching the Bay Bridge. We have been in the van for nearly 40 minutes. I can think of a number of words to describe this horrible commute. #commute challenge #betterBayArea pic.twitter.com/6iArMHY5Zl— Lyanne Melendez (@LyanneMelendez) October 25, 2018
