Does anyone here live in the East Bay commute to SF for work? Is it easier if you have a car? Moving to CA from the Midwest so I’m unfamiliar with the area

I don’t but am familiar enough with traffic patterns in the area. It really depends where in East Bay you live and where in SF you work. If you can take public transit (ideally Bart/Muni) between home and work, you’ll be fine. If your apartment or office is not reachable by public transit and you need to drive, you will hate your life. Driving anywhere in the area isn’t fun, but getting across the Bay Bridge during rush hour is a level of hell you don’t want to experience.

A car is useful for weekend trips outside the city, but ideally you don’t want to depend on driving in your day-to-day.

That’s very helpful. Thank you both!

I used to take BART. It is much easier. Driving will be a pain. You will always get stuck on the bay bridge.

Haven't commuted in over a year but BART/Muni is the way to go.

Have a friend doing this and they BART in
