Well here’s some tree mail you might have missed – it’s an official SFMTA flyer advertising the forthcoming 5L Fulton Express bus line.
But first a little housekeeping. Uh, let’s see , oh, MUNI sucks of course,* and your vaunted MUNI is the slowest big city transit system in America, and MUNI loves to lie, all the time, about the stuff like the brief history of unpopular, gratuitous, add-on traffic circles in San Francisco, and, what else, oh MUNI has spilled more barrels of petroleum into San Francisco Bay than the hated, oil-spilling Cosco Busan.
Anyway, here’s what you’ll find these days in our Lexus-filled Western Addition housing projects, you know, attached to telephone poles:

Oh and they’re going to take away parking on the east side of a few blocks of Central “Avenue” so as to aid #5’s negotiating the “Central Kink” near the Lucky super – that should probably help the drivers.
But no 5 Fulton is ever going to “fly.”
You do realize that, dontcha SFMTA?
Or maybe you’re j/k?
In closing, El Projecto Piloto “Volando” por Fulton! Haha!
“The SFMTA proposes a pilot project along the 5 Fulton corridor that will introduce limited-stop service to provide quicker trips and will increase frequency to reduce crowding between 6th Avenue and Downtown. The target implementation date is fall 2013. Benefits include:
- Improved service reliability and up to 20% quicker travel times
- Reduced crowding with 20-30% more capacity during peak periods
- Improved transit and pedestrian safety
Please join us to discuss this proposed method of improving service within the 5 Fulton corridor.”
*If you can’t come right out and say that, repeatedly, then you’re part of the problem and you should just go all the way by hopping aboard the SFMTA gravy train to get your share of the booty.
