Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

There are a lot of reasons why People Hate Us On Yelp, lately. Feel free to see why, on Yelp.

Hey, which costs more, a heavy clunky slow FordGoBike or an electrified JUMP bike? At $1200 (plus an “admin fee”), a Ford GoBike costs more. How can this be?

IDK.

Anyway, maybe the Ford ppl will have better luck over the next 30 days. We’ll see.

In the meantime, the dockless and/or electrified and/or scooterly competition will continue to eat Ford’s lunch…

Masonic’s Brand-New Medians are Encouraging Jaywalkers, Already, FBOW

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

I never saw this on the Old Masonic:

And actually, our SFMTA’s jaywalking issue is more pronounced just north of Geary, but it doesn’t want to acknowledge it.

There are pros and cons to this long, drawn out plan to remove lanes from Masonic of course. It would be nice if our SFMTA could acknowledge that as well…

IOW, there isn’t yet, nor will there be, any promised “transformation” of the 3000 feet of Masonic betwixt Fell and Geary. That should be obvious to all by now, even before completion.

Anyway, I’ve never seen jaywalking on this hilly part of Masonic, until now, in all my years…
