Sunday ridership fueled by San Francisco's Pride parade and celebration appears to have set a new record, BART officials said today.
The previous record for Sunday ridership were set on the day of the 2012 Pride parade, when 259,000 trips were recorded, according to BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost. In 2011, there weer 247,000 trips on the same day.
As of 10 p.m. Sunday, the agency had recorded 276,041 trips.
BART provided extra service for Pride, including extra trains and longer trains, with an average length of nine cars per train, Trost said. In addition, more BART police officers are on duty.
Some tragedies at hospitals might be unavoidable, but a mother and father who lost their 21 month old daughter at Children's Hospital Oakland say it's what happened after their daughter's death that has continued to torment them.
To Celebrate the first year of The Bay Lights, a light sculpture on the Bay Bridge, the SF Bicycle Coalition lead a large group of cyclists on a ride through the city where many had their bikes lit up.
