Monday, August 3rd, 2015

Here’s the word on the street, from fliers posted all over:

Get up to speed on the coming ARBOR-GEDDON here.

I’m not sure about the reference to “DEVELOPERS.” SFGov is fixing on taking out two lanes of parking / rush-hour lanes betwixt Geary and Masonic. It’s not like they’re cutting down these trees to put up a condo building.

Here’s the proposal for after these old trees get cut down – it’s another “street art” project, complete with new, transplanted palm trees. Kind of an L.A. look.

Here’s what it looks like now – not an “urban forest” but this stand does have an actual “canopy,” which, of course, is unusual since forests, by definition, aren’t urban.

I can’t see anything online yet, but the flier says Judgment Day will be on September 2nd, 2015 – 5:00 PM in Room 416 at City Hall.

Akit’s Complaint Department Pwns the SFMTA Once Again – Why Does MUNI Strand Riders Out on 48th?

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

Famous Akit has been riding the SFMTA over the whole Point Lobos Saturday service issue – check out his update.

(If MUNI ran the post office, a first-class stamp would cost $17. And delivery to Hawaii and Alaska? Well you could just forget about that.)

Remember, Transit First, Riders Last.

Are These People Waiting for MUNI or Waiting to Take Pictures of MUNI?

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

Well, judging by the fact that every last one of this group of 20 or so people at a MUNI bus stop on Market Street was holding a camera, I’d say that they were waiting to take photos of MUNI, and everything else they could see.

Could it have been a nighttime Photowalk?
