IDK, man. I like my corporate buses all black and sharp-edged.
So what’s up what’s up with this? Check out the text up front – “friendly?”
(I prefer planes)
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:
You don’t see MUNI operators doing this at this particular intersection, but here you go – a corporate bus driver trying to head south on Masonic at Fell. Westbound traffic ended up simply going around the back of the bus, with priority going to your nimbler forms of transpo:
HONK HONK HONK went the numerous blocked drivers, some of whom were delayed for like a minute and a half, oh well.
I’m not saying it’s easy driving in Frisco. It’s just something that you have to get used to…
This is How We Live in 2016:
Which is the bigger disincentive to ripping off MUNI in the future?
All right, kids. Be sure to NOT be like 66-year-old MSM’er CWNevius. But if you do evade a fare and get caught on you’re 100th evasion, just be sure to not complain about the whole process, the way he did.
