As seen in the North of NoPA DivCo Divisadero Corridor Western Addition:
MUNI sure aint dog-friendly.
See? The new (to Bauer’s anyway) blue stickers for 2016:
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.
You can barely see the telephone icon on the blue SFMTA sticker – it’s right next to the “311” you’re supposed to dial if you’re a “vigilante” who’s seen some improper bus driving behavior. But OTOH, it’s easy to see the How’s My Driving? sticker, so one imagines that 311 would get fewer complaint calls now?
The companies certainly don’t want to end up like Bauer’s, with all those 311 calls, that’s for sure
These are the new robin’s egg blue decals from the SFMTA – the “pilot” bus program is over, so the old light green decals have expired now.
If you have any beefs with these buses, you’re supposed to call 311, that’s what the new phone icon means. And then you tell them, “Bus 09-5016 just run me over,” or something. That’s the system, baby.
The prefix “09” means LUX LEASING LLC. What’s that? Who the Hell knows, Gentle Reader. It’s some company, somewhere.
And now we’re at the back. Here’s something new to me – a HOW’S MY DRIVING sticker:
‘Cause the “Luxury” Leasing ppl want you complaining to them afore you call up SFGov with your bus beef.
This is how things stand with corporate buses in Frisco in the second half of 2016…
There was this news a few months back of course.
And this is what they’re rolling these days:
Is this an old shuttle ID? I think so. But them diesels engines, them BLUETEC “clean” diesels, well, they run a bit hot, so that’s why decal is falling apart?
If this is the old ID, why not just take it off?
It’s 580 California in front of the BofA Building:
You don’t see MUNI operators doing this at this particular intersection, but here you go – a corporate bus driver trying to head south on Masonic at Fell. Westbound traffic ended up simply going around the back of the bus, with priority going to your nimbler forms of transpo:
HONK HONK HONK went the numerous blocked drivers, some of whom were delayed for like a minute and a half, oh well.
I’m not saying it’s easy driving in Frisco. It’s just something that you have to get used to…
