Let’s See Here: A Chariot Private Shuttle Van Running Through Golden Gate Park on a National Holiday?

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Hey, are San Francisco taxicabs somewhat restricted* in Golden Gate Park? Yes, yes they are. But here comes a Chariot:

Does Chariot take people to work in the Financh on Veterans Day? IDK. Does Chariot run charters on big holidays? Perhaps. Or maybe the driver is repositioning or traveling for maintenance. Or maybe there’s some other reason it makes sense for this driver to “cut-through” the park.

Anyway, I was surprised to see a Chariot in GGP on a national holiday…

*I think cabbies** aren’t supposed to cruise the park for pick-ups, I think that’s the rule.

**Cabbies cabbies cabbies – own it, cabbies. This term isn’t offensive at all, to most.

Chariot Launches “The Great Haight” – Commuter Bus Service to the Financial from the Upper Haight

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

The latest:

“Scott Owades, Lone[-ly] Mountain

As a transportation fanatic, I’m excited to be able to bring new commuting options into the neighborhood. My company, Chariot, is launching The Great Haight tomorrow, running down Haight & Oak St.

The route runs from 6:30 – 9:30 AM and 4:30 – 7:30 PM, and the pickups are:

Haight & Stanyan
Haight & Clayton
Haight & Masonic
Lyon & Oak
Oak & Pierce
Oak & Webster

While Muni serves Market St. well, it’s a pain to commute on Muni to SoMa & Caltrain. If you’re going in that direction, you should give this a [try].”

The Cougars of NoPA – Here It Is, a Bike Trailer What Costs More Than My First Car – Presenting the Chariot Cougar

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

So of course, with something so valued, you gotta lock that down.

As seen in the Western Addition – this thing runs $1000-something, believe it or not:

OTOH, my bike trailer costed $100-something, but I don’t think it has bearings or whatnot. (Like Robinson Caruso, it’s as primitive as can be, kind of like a Roman chariot, actually.)

But it gets the job done and it keeps me out of Cougar Country, so fine…

The Park Station SFPD Lying in Wait on the Speediest Part of JFK Jr Drive near 8th Avenue in Golden Gate Park

Friday, November 4th, 2011

I assume that this officer is parked here, betwixt the Conservatory of Flowers and 8th Avenue, for the benefit of speeders.

(BMW drivers, especially, have a hard time keeping to the limit here, it seems…)

Sometimes the cops put an automated radar trailer what tells you your speed, but people tend to ignore it.

As this Audi (Chariot of the Yuppie) driver shows. (Note that he was slowing down to 36 MPH in this shot.)

Oh well.

Another SFPD Crackdown on Speeding Through Golden Gate Park

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

First come the radar trailers, then comes John Law, handing out the tickets on JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park. Your 11-99 Foundation license plate holder und ID card don’t work on City streets, don’t you know?


The driver of this Audi A4, chariot of the harried yuppie, throws out the anchor to slow down to 36 MPH in a 25 zone. Click to expand
