Now the Brand Ambassadors of MUNI are Loitering About at Night – What’s the Point of This, SFMTA?

You see, MUNI, your problems aren’t really concentrated during the night, so what’s the deal here?

What function are these people performing?

Four in the day, two at night, at just one intersection:

Oh, really? OK, but how does that help the average MUNI passenger? You know the people you disappoint each and every day? Yes, traveling to Europe on junkets (can I bring the wife, can I bring the kids!) and buying gigantic tunnel boring machines (for the useless and ultimately burdensome Central Subway) is fun, but why not instead just struggle to get an extra run or two in on a few lines during drive time? At least you’d look like you’re trying.

Don’t you realize that you’re a defective government agency, SFMTA? Don’t you think you have better things to do with your resources than operate your brand ambassador outreach program?

Or, more likely, you think, “Wow, if only we could get more money, we’d have six people out there talking to each other about what kind of weed is the best kind of weed and what was on Colbert last night ‘n stuff, and then our outreach would be three times more effective!”

    I think they’ve had people at this intersection all week because of the 22 Fillmore reroute – but yes, I agree, more than 2 people during peak times is a waste of resources…

    It’s all about the overtime, baby! They’ve figured out that they’ll not get the raises; so they might as well rake in the overtime!!
