Night owl chariot

I was visiting a sick, post-surgical best friend this weekend who looked at me with some surprise when I confessed I had never heard of the Night Owl bus, the cross-Bay chariot that was supposed to run from SF to Oakland and beyond as long as partiers and graveyard shift workers (etc) did.
Oh the shame! How many of you were like me and believed that you had to curtail your evening hours to fit BART or had to curtail your reveling to fit driving laws? No more. But, like many public services, it’s a “use it or lose it” proposition.  A wide stretch in Costra County Co. was discontinued or at least in danger of being discontinued for lack of use. Don’t let that happen to us in Oakland.
