This one is new on me:
IDK how this works IRL.
Might be appealing to you…
More or less:
You want to get into this – well, we can get into this. You know, sometime.
Here’s the etching on the tombstone:
“Update: The SFpark pilot evaluation has been released and changes to data feed, mobile apps, and web map remain. Demand-responsive rate adjustments will continue in existing SFpark areas. The SFMTA will use the results of the evaluation to develop a proposal for expanding the SFpark approach to the SFMTA’s other meters, lots and garages in the city.”
But did we really need to pay people to bury sensors under the pavement? Nope! Oh, they’re all dead now, batteries expired, just sitting under the surface doing nothing? Yep!
There are many ways to skin a cat, Brother. This “futuristic” and expensive way was the wrong way.
Oh, and speaking of the Feds, why do Law Enforcement Officials come to Frisco and get their guns stolen from their cars, over and over and over again, despite all the warnings, despite our well-earned reputation?
And, you know, as promised, we can get into why it’s still hard to park in some areas of Frisco and why in other areas you can see an entire block of metered spaces with basically no cars at all.
I have no objections to market rate pricing, but SFPark was a big fail whale.
*No, not on street-cleaning day, on a regular day.
Somehow our SFMTA makes money off of offering rental cars like this:
Somehow, I getaround without rental cars.
Anyway, I’ve never seen this…
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…
(I didn’t think I had this shot, but it turns out that I do.)
As seen on the way up to Mt Tam, a little down the hill from Bootjack:
Imagine a 40-something BMW driver of Marin County who says to himself, “GOTTA MAKE TIME, GOTTA MAKE TIME” when he’s 15th in a line of cars behind a weekend peloton – that’d be my #1 suspect for the perpetrator of this graffito crime…
It’s Rental Vintage Cars:
Here’s how the formally one-way Sansome is looking at Broadway these days
And here’s the result – heading north out of the Financh:
The SFPD doesn’t mess with this mess as it can just go north in the southbound lane.
This is another kind of meh SFMTA initiative. It’s not a game-changer and it doesn’t appear that it will ever become any part of any game changer, even when added with other things…
It looks like this:
