I am planning a trip to MacWorld Expo at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.  In the past, I’ve always driven into the city, paid the bridge toll, then paid for parking there.  This year, I’m planning on taking the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) from the Dublin/Pleansanton station to the Powell Street station in San Francisco.

Some of my concerns when taking mass transit are the schedules, station locations and travel times between stations.  This is where iBART comes into play.  iBART is an iPhone application. 

Its purpose is to be helpful to anyone who is using the BART system.  iBART is also a one-stop reference source to help passengers locate nearby stations, provide contact information for BART, station maps, BART advisories and a Trip Planner.  It also tells you how much your trip will cost you.

I am surprised by the functionality and intuitive user interface of this sofware.  There is also a paid version, which includes more features like up-to-the-minute information related to the BART trains.

iBART is definitely a keeper in my book.  To read more about it visit www.pandav.us
