Hmm!! may be folks in San francisco don't care so much. last time i
went to a San Francisco facility, i handed them my Nepalese driving
license (no, wasn't carrying my passport), and they didn't blink at
all. though when i came back, they did ask me what the hell an 'auto
rickshaw' was :-).
Generally, as long as i had a pre-authorized ticket open for access
to equipment, any form of ID with a picture has worked.
