Even BART Agents Are Grossed Out, Terrified by BART (Video)

You think your BART ride gets your gag reflexes going? Try working there for eight hours a day.

All your worst nightmares that take place during your 30-45 minute commute on BART -- pooping passengers, angry drunks, dudes with knives, etc. -- are just another day at the office for BART agents. Upset by the seemingly nonstop violence and bathroom habits, BART workers, specifically members of the ATU 1555, released this video titled "The Video BART Politicians Don't Want You To See."

It's not necessarily eye-opening, since we all know that the transit station is about as sanitary and savory as a trip to a Portta Potti. Still, it's always nice to have a graphic refresher that illustrates how unsafe and unsanitary public transit has become.

Have a gander at these employees' experience (note: don't eat while viewing):

If this video was supposed to make me feel bad for BART employees, it didn't work.  I've never seen such disgruntled, unhappy, rude employees in my entire life.  Only a labor union could keep such terrible employees gainfully employed.

I'm getting really tired of people hating on BART. Yes, there are crazy people on it: but um, hello, have you ever been on the subways in New York, Boston, or Washington DC? They're hardly better.

BART operators are too fat to have gag reflexes.

I'd rather walk, thank you. What a place to work. San Francisco needs to clean up the whole city, it's becoming an embarrassment.

no excuse it should be so nasty. why is no one pooping in the muni and san Francisco has more crazy idiots than all the other counties combined. so bart is responsible for this.

Does this kind of behavior happen on London's Paris or Romes Metro systems or is there something seriously wrong with Americans??

@granola357 WRONG. NYC & DC are MUCH better. Boston has the worst drivers in the country bar none, I didn't know they had a subway.

@Allyn Nobles It is called BARF, a division of Bay Area Rapid Flight.

@whatswronghere   Well, in Europe, they actually take care of the mentally ill, we used to.  America is over, sad to say.  At least one hope:  Unlike the Germans and other nations, we aren't much of a danger as fascists because our youth can't fight.
