AFTER BARTY: I Finally Understand Lyft’s new FRIENDS WITH TRANSIT Campaign – But Lyft has NO IDEA How Slow our SFMTA MUNI Can BeMonday, November 23rd, 2015
Here’s a new one – another Friends With Transit ad:
Now this ad I get – it’s saying how Lyft can become your “last mile” transportation solution.
Fine, but this ad here, the one I saw first seems to equate our MUNI METRO service as something akin to a fast, reliable transit system. Perhaps it might seem that the 415 has something like that to young people in NYC or whatever or whomever or wherever, but IRL you wouldn’t suffer through an N Judah ride only to take a Lyft taxi a few hundred yards north to (your home / tent / self-dug hobbit hole in) Golden Gate Park.
Now, why would our slow, corrupt SFMTA appreciate these ads? Well, it’s money for partner ClearChannel and the SFMTA, plus it’s saying how Lyft is compatible with transit, as opposed to, you know, Lyft “disrupting” the SFMTA by siphoning money away from it.
So IDK, Frisco has a ton of bus stops all over town, so I think ppl would simply walk the last quarter mile or less it takes to get home. Perhaps this ad campaign makes sense in less urban areas?

The Line of Cars Queuing Up to Enter Trader Joes #100 is Now Officially OUT OF CONTROL – Oftentimes Backing Up to Euclid These DaysTuesday, November 17th, 2015
Here’s the view from the north…
…and here’s the view from the south:
Mind you, this is after SFGov originally “planned” things and also after SFGov “fixed” things by “giving” a lane of Masonic to TJ’s.
So southbound Masonic, the Great Connector betwixt Pine and Geary and Pine and Turk and Pine and Fell, and eventually Lincoln, goes down to one lane, oh well.
Mind you, not all the ppl in the slow lane want to shop at TJ’s – some are just stuck there until the fast lane opens up. This of course is also a symptom of the problem.
Getaround Rent-A-Car Attains Personhood Status – Big Corporation Granted Coveted Residential Parking Program (RPP) Permits?Thursday, November 5th, 2015
I thought you needed to prove that you lived (or worked, in some cases) in the area in order to qualify for the Residential Parking Permit Program.
Is Getaround Rent-a-Car now a resident in the 94117?
So you can’t park in Getaround Rent-a-Car’s (formerly public) parking spaces for even one minute, but Getaround Rent-a-Car can park in your spaces all day long?
