Seen & heard on BART this week: carols, fake Chanel, E-40, meditation

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 http://www.twitter.com/, 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 www.twitter.com/sfbart. 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. Find out more about how to contribute photos.

Note: Seen & Heard on BART will be on hiatus through Jan. 8, 2013, for the holiday break. See you in the New Year!

There was a girl with no umbrella standing in the rain waiting for BART. I stood next to her so she could share mine.
