Halloween night is coming up fast in the San Francisco Bay Area. So now is the time to start planning your 2013 big party night in and around San Francisco.
The one thing that should not be in your Halloween nigh schedule is bring your own car. No, not at all, especially if you are thinking about drinking at the local parties, bars and taverns.
You and your friends should definitely use public transportation on October 31, Halloween night, 2013. Just let other people take you where you want to go in October and then you don't have to worry about a thing.
First, lots of people will be using the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train system, and you should too. It is fast, easy and affordable. Go to bart.gov to start planning your Halloween night travel itinerary.
What about Muni, the local bus service? You can bet there will be lots of buses available all night long on Halloween. You can find more information at their website.
Caltrain is another option, of course. Lots of people use Caltrain to travel up and down the peninsular. You should too so review your options at caltrain.com.
You can also call for a ride. There are cab services like yellowcabsf.com and a new service called lyft.me. For any ride service, make sure to let your friends know which cab or ride you're taking and where they are taking you. And always try to get a receipt too.
Have fun on Halloween night 2013 in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
