Why do so many people turn around at the end of the BART line?

When I get off BART at the Dublin/Pleasanton station, I often see quite a few people (as many as ten) getting off my train, walking across the platform, and boarding the train that goes the other direction. Dublin/Pleasanton is the end of the line, and there is only one line that goes there. What are these people doing?

I've already thought of two possible answers: they may have missed their transfer station, or they may just be riding for fun. But the former seems unlikely to account for many people, since Dublin/Pleasanton is three stops past the nearest transfer station. As for joyriding, I'm not sure if this is really a thing, particularly before 8:00 in the morning. Is it?
