Cyclist Gary Yamamoto owns Sacramento Tree Service in Sacramento. He heard today would be a Spare the Air free transit day in the San Francisco Bay Area so he got up at 3:30 this morning and drove to Stockton where he caught the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) Train. He rode ACE for a free ride into San Jose, where he ran to catch Caltrain to San Francisco.
From Caltrain’s terminus at 4th & King in San Francisco, Gary planned to ride his bike to the Ferry Building to catch the Vallejo Ferry. After hanging out in Vallejo for a little while, he planned to return to San Francisco via the Ferry and then figure out his options. He didn’t know if he wanted to go down the East Bay using BART (and then using AC Transit to connect to VTA Light Rail for a ride back to Diridon Station) or just return to the South Bay using Caltrain.
Gary planned to complete this entire circuit before the 1p.m. deadline, when the ferries, BART, Caltrain and ACE would no longer be free.
