Seen & heard on BART this week: Fog town, iPad station, singing rooster

Pay phone at Fruitvale BART

BART riders are a busy bunch -- taking trains to work, to play, to meet friends and travel around the Bay Area. While they're on BART they're gaming, crocheting, listening to music, reading and people-watching. Here's a fresh batch of things people saw and talked about on BART this week. We'll update this page every week so come back to see what people are doing on BART.  We compile these from, the social networking and microblogging service where users share short messages or "tweets" about what they're doing. You can follow our Twitter feed at We're also looking for rider-contributed photos like the one on this page from Flickr user kismet_70, of a real old-fashioned pay phone at the Fruitvale BART Station.  We're giving away $25 BART tickets periodically for our favorite contributions. Find out more about that promotion and about how to contribute photos.

Note: “Seen and Heard on BART” will be on hiatus through Monday, January 3, due to holiday staffing.
