MUNI sure aint dog-friendly.

Here’s Your New 400 Block of 11th Street, for Better or Worse, from Our SFMTA

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Here’s what this one small block of 11th Street looks like now, after the SFMTA started changing things.

I can’t say I understand what the SFMTA’s doing here.

But I do understand what this means:

Muni Bus that Killed Cyclist Cheng Jin Lai Missing Key Safety Equipment

Yeah, the same small block.

Anyway, the yellow lines are back closer to where you’d expect them to be, so that’s nice. (I guess this scene from last month was just for construction.)

So now this block has 2.5 sidewalks.

Why not four or five? IDK, maybe next year…

Golden Gate Transit Says, “This Bus Uses Clean-Air Technology,” But ALL Diesel Buses Use Clean-Air Technology, Right?

IDK, Man:

Or IOW, we have buses what use diesel.

The Gray Lady ‘splains tings a dozen years ago:

Some city buses say ”this bus uses clean air technology” on the back.

I don’t know how boastful our GGTD should be, frankly.

An Enlarged Sidewalk / Bus Depot for 11th and Harrison?

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

Here’s the new sitch, looking north from Division:

I suppose a lot of parking spaces will be sacrificed at the altar of the 9 San Bruno “Rapid” [LIMITED] Project, a joint from the SFMTA’s MUNI Great Leap Forward, Comrades.

And looking south from Folsom:

Better Late Than Never: Bauer’s Limo / Bus Goes Legit

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

See? The new (to Bauer’s anyway) blue stickers for 2016:

7j7c3976-copy

But instead of Driven By Mercedes Benz and Powered By Bauer’s “Intelligent” Transportation shouldn’t it be the opposite instead, you know, owing to the MB engine powering and the Bauer-branded driver, you know, driving?

(What a POS company this has been over the years, sry.)

What else? Oh the BlueTec badge stands for what, the “solar bus” they were trying to promote themselves with a few years back? Or maybe an electric bus or something? No, it’s just plain old diesel, oh well.

And look, the don’t call 311 on us, call us directly sticker is bigger than before now.

MTAP? What’s MTAP?

I thought they could have been Metropolitan Transit Agency Police, but no – it’s Muni Transit Assistance Program.

SFMTA Update: “MUNI Glossier” – Beauty Advice from Our Substandard Transit Agency

Friday, October 21st, 2016

So much to unpack here:

7j7c3094-copy

So I guess MUNI (ALL CAPS all the time – it’s your brand, MUNI. Own it.) has wanted to make more money by using a “wrap” around the whole bus for advertising. But then you, the Gentle Rider (and me too, sometimes), can’t even tell it’s a MUNI bus. So now we have the MUNI logo ON the wrap? So we get, MUNI Glossier. (Man, who wouldn’t want a glossier MUNI, all shiny ‘n stuff!)

So:

-Hybrid Electric actually means Hybrid Diesel, sry.

-“SKIN FIRST. MAKEUP SECOND?” Oh, so that’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years! Thanks, MUNI!

-QUERY: “Excuse please, large American man. I am new to your country. What mean, ‘Boy Brow grooming?'” ANSWER: “Sorry, I can’t help you there.”

And of course, this bus was delayed due to all the passengers what didn’t pay for their rides, ala CW Nevius. I’ve never seen the MUNI Police not catch ppl – every time they look for cheats, they find them, it seems.

Poor MUNI!

Balboa Dip, Two Angles

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Who says The Richmond is boring?

7j7c2969-copy

This is, and has been, a thing – see?

Hey, should these two blocks be on the Strava? Well, since there’re stop signs at the bottom of the dip, the answer is NO. Unless the “King of the Mountain” can actually stop, wait for any cross traffic to clear and then climb up to the next intersection in just 13 seconds…

If only Strava had more lawyer-advisors, you know, instead of the lawyer-investors, then Strava might look at this issue differently…
