Transportation in the San Francisco Bay Area as well as in the U.S. in general can be surprising for people who come from countries with convenient, dependable, and modern public transportation systems. In contrast to residents of Asian and European cities, the majority of people in the U.S. tend to use private instead of public transportation, particularly automobiles. As a result, using a bus, train, taxi, or bicycle may be more challenging, and you may find fewer choices. Prices may be higher, services may not run all night, and the time between buses and trains may be longer. Except in big cities, taxis must be arranged by calling a taxi company, and the costs are considerably higher than for service within a big city.
