How does this work – you take the roof off the back of a regular bus and then tack it on the back to make a super-long, semi-convertible bus?
Anyway, the rear wheels seem to be too far forward is all…
There was this news a few months back of course.
And this is what they’re rolling these days:
Is this an old shuttle ID? I think so. But them diesels engines, them BLUETEC “clean” diesels, well, they run a bit hot, so that’s why decal is falling apart?
If this is the old ID, why not just take it off?
I guess he sort-of-stopped in the middle of this crosswalk on Market outbound near Jones…
…like you can see more than one red here, when the light is against you…
…but a second later he was off again, to wait for the reds at 7th:
The signals at the goofy intersection of Market, McAllister, and Jones seem to be messed up lately, IDK why. There was a big redesign to make most of McAllister a two-way street in this area and that worked out OK I s’pose but this hasn’t been a good place to be in 2016.
(Note that the anti-pedestrian chains on the north side of the foot of McAllister have been removed, perhaps to fight crime. This place is pretty dysfunctional, of course.)
Anyway, here’s the kicker – the quite insincere I PLEDGE SAFE STREETS bumper sticker on the back:
On It Goes…
IDK, man – 60 foot buses on McAllister?
They’ll be like the Mammoth Car from Speed Racer, non?
They’ll be just like this monster:
Hello, Backwards MUNI. Hey, what are some of the downsides of this plan? Oh, none, none at all? Well, that’s reassuring. But hey MUNI? What about your Only In Frisco “work rules?” Are those a part of MUNIFORWARD? Oh they are, but you just don’t want to deal with them? OK. OK fine.
Anyway, here’s the “big” announcement:
These big monsters look more comfortable on Mission, just saying:
On It Goes…
Oh, I know why! It’s ’cause blowback against the SFMTA would be enormous. Oh well.
But anything goes on a hop-on hop-off tourist bus, apparently:
