Driving from Richmond to San Francisco on a weekday morning can take more than an hour. Getting back to the East Bay at quitting time is even worse as area freeways lock up. Parking in Downtown S.F. is a nightmare. It's all so expensive -- not just in terms of dollars spent on gas, tolls and parking, but on your well-being.

There's a better way.
