PLEASANT HILL (KRON) — It’s a story fit for the movies.

A Bay Area couple found love during a chance encounter on a train — and since then, they haven’t looked back.

The two strangers met at a San Francisco BART station more than a year ago — and last month, that serendipitous meeting led to a surprise marriage proposal on an East Bay train platform.

In a Facebook post, Anuja KC said she and her now-fiance, Amit Patel, met at the Civic Center BART station — and over the course of a few months, they continued to run into each other again at different stations.

Fast forward to Nov. 16, Anuja was surprised with a marriage proposal on the platform at the Pleasant Hill station.

She said in a Facebook post, “We started dating and there was no looking back.”

BART even chimed in on the proposal, congratulating the couple on Twitter.

In honor of how they met, the couple took engagement photos at the station with the train platform and station map as a backdrop.

Surprisingly, this isn’t the first instance of romance on BART.

In July, a couple and their wedding party took a BART train to their nuptials in Oakland.
