Delivery Map Redlining in San Francisco – Comparing Amici’s Pizza with TCB Courier

Via Mission Mission (the blog so nice they named it twice), comes word of a new delivery map for the newish, bicycle-only TCB Courier delivery service.

So now there are more YESes and fewer NOs when you’re a-hankering for Chinese at 1:00 AM. TCB has neatly skirted the Western Addition north of Turk Street, but this map doesn’t have any redlined “no-service” areas and it doesn’t look at all gerrymandered. 

Hai, chizu!:


How does that compare to a delivery map from an outfit like, let’s say, Amici’s East Coast Pizzeria?

So it’s No Pizza For You in the Western A all the time and no night-time pizza for you in the Tenderloin, aka “Theater District,” and the Flank, aka 6th Street from Market to Folsom, basically.

Is this kind of thing legal in San Francisco and/or America? Oh yes.

But what about a San Francisco taxi driver? Can he or she just say, “No, I don’t take paying customers to the Fillmore or the “Loin – too dangerous” – like, is that Kosher?

Hells no! That’s a misdemeanor called Failure to Convey and that will put a hack in the hoosegow.

Anyway, how can you Loiners get your East Coast-style pie from Amici’s? Maybe you could call up TCB and see if they will accommodate ya?

Just ring them up at (415) 797-2255. Who knows, maybe they’ll have some kind of solution for you shut-ins. Maybe they’ll have a way of getting some almost-as-good, piping hot, west coast ‘za to your door.

One Call Does It All!

    TCB’s a super cool idea, but their map kind of reeks of “we ride fixies so we don’t want to go up any major hills or stray too far from the Mission.”

    I dunno, they include a lot of Potrero and there are some *major* hills in there. I can barely make it up in my 12-speed…

    Testify, PD. All is not flat in the TCB Courier map….
