And You Thought BART Was Expensive

Ferries are merry, trains can be a pain, the bus is a plus … and Bay Area residents now have a totally unique transit alternative: the Airship Ventures Zeppelin Eureka.

Airship Ventures has been offering rides in the zeppelin since November, with trips along the coast to San Francisco, Carmel and Big Sur, Kamika Dunlap reported in this paper.

Ticket prices vary based on flight duration and destination – starting at $495 an hour. Don’t let us hear you complaining about BART being expensive ever again! and p.s.: What is the difference between a blimp, a zeppelin and a dirigible?
