Some of these RVs are live-work space for bikes thieves, oh well:

Here’s How the People at “WALKSCORE” Don’t Know Anything About Frisco – The Twitterloin as “Paradise”Wednesday, August 24th, 2016
WTF to that. By the numbers:
“Walker’s Paradise – Daily errands do not require a car.”
But they DO require great fortitude, right?
“Rider’s Paradise – World-class public transportation.”
Is this a joke? I think they’re talking about MUNI.
“Biker’s Paradise – Flat as a pancake, excellent bike lanes.”
Uh, the Twitterloin is as flat as a pancake what’s been tilted up a ways. And I don’t know where “excellent” anything comes from.
This just goes to show how a monomaniacal focus upon Just One Thing can end up having some people, particularly out of towners, missing the forest for the trees…
Our SFMTA Lacks the Energy to Keep Up with the Foot of Golden Gate Avenue, So Unofficial Orange Cones Mingle with White PostsFriday, July 29th, 2016
For a few days anyway, you’d see just a pair of white safe hit posts from the SFMTA here at the foot of Golden Gate near Market. But then along comes the unofficial SFMTrA to put the unofficial orange cones, which instigated the SFMTA into putting in the white posts, back up.
So this is how the story ends, with the lazy SFMTA asking for more money to do what it’s paid to do already and some dude maintaining the orange cones on a regular basis…
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…
Our SFMTA Wants to Claim It’s Increasing Parking Up at Twin Peaks, But It’s DECREASING Parking – One Simple Trick!Thursday, July 14th, 2016
Most of the tourists on top of that twin came from all the cars you can see on the left side. But all that parking is gone now, so tourists aren’t going to go to the top of Twin Peaks as much anymore.
What’s that, “good,” you say? Well OK, but why doesn’t the SFMTA just come out and say that? Instead, we get this:
Will any parking be added or removed? No parking is being proposed for removal. Today, informal (illegal) parking takes place at the center of the Figure 8 and occasionally in the outer lane of the roadway. This project will formalize parking at both the center and south intersections, increasing the number of available stalls. Parking in the travel lane will no longer be possible.
So they’re not “removing parking,” they’re simply blocking cars from getting to the parking spaces? And you can’t park on the side of a highway in CA anymore, is that correct, really?
So the real answer to the question Will any parking be added or removed is:
Yes. Hell yes.
But who are these people so uncouth and “informal” that they think they can park their rental cars on the side of the road and walk up a hill for a look-see? Just fucking tourists, that’s all. And it’s not even the same ones day after day and year after year – it’s a constant flow of new people from all over the Bay Area, California, ‘Mericah, and The Rest Of The World. Those are the people the SFMTA and the Rec and Park (RPD – it’s Frisco’s name for the Parks and Recreation Department) are getting rid of, at least on busy days.
