As seen in an apartment building:
I suppose this is better than nothing, but you prolly oughta have a garage afore you go all-electric, and many people don’t have garages in the bay area, of course. Anyway, this is better than nothing I suppose…
Let’s see if I can pay off on the headline.
This ‘splains tings:
I’ll tell you I’m not a cop, so I couldn’t name you the numerous CVC violations I witnessed Fast and Furious over the course of about 20 seconds going from Market Sutter Sansome and then across Bush and then she lost me. Everybody has different standards for what’s appropriate driving, but geez, man. (It’s the electric assist what encourages this, IMO.)
Adrian founded Green Tiffin in fall of 2013 in San Francisco, although the idea seed was planted early in his childhood.
Now where was I? Oh:
– Guaranteed base hourly pay + delivery incentive
– Zip through San Francisco hills with Green Tiffin electric bicycles
– Look sharp in our delivery coat
– FREE healthy and sustainable lunch on workdays
– A pathway for development
– A fun and fast-paced working environment
I’ll tell you, a cab company in Frisco used to have a “racing” system of dispatch where the closest driver would be assigned a fare but others were free to swoop in to get there first – this was to prevent cabbies from lying too much about how close they were to the customer. Anyway, one time two cabbies working for the same outfit crashed into each other trying to win this game so that ended the racing system of dispatch.
And now Green Tiffen.
I’ll tell you Green Tiffen, I don’t think you’re on a “sustainable journey.”
First there was the Renault Twizy:
As seen on Page:
And now there’s the highly similar Nissan Quad:
Race them if you want to:
All the deets:
A Scoot Quad is a mini electric car that can carry two people. Say hello to the Quads and get ready to explore the city in a whole new way.
• Top speed of 25 MPH
• Range of 40 city miles
• $1 of electricity to fill ‘er up from a normal wall outlet
• Gets the equivalent of 250 MPG (after doing the math to convert the electrical energy to dirty gas equivalent)
• Produces 6% of the CO2 per mile of a car (including the emissions from the power plants that make the electricity)
• US drivers license and Scoot membership required
• Carries two people — that’s what the backseat is for!
• No freeways, bridges, or roads with speed limits over 35 MPH
• Quads are $6 up to 30 min, 20¢ per minute afterwards.
As seen on Steiner in the Western Addition:
Definitely seeing more of these red scooters parked on the streets of San Francisco lately, for better or worse. That’s just my observation.
It’s time to take a look at what the peanut gallery has to say.
‘Bout what I expected – seems as if “range anxiety” was/is the big issue.
Oh, a new pricing scheme…
I think I was on-campus, you know, down in The Valley, back in aught thirteen when I saw my first post-collegiate tech bro* getting about on an electric unicycle.
Of course now it’s ought sixteen and these things have spread to Frisco’s Financh. But this tech bro is a true master. He’s got his hands in the pockets of his cargo shorts!
A quick jog around a load of boxes and then we’re off, to The Future:
Of course we might be heading the in the wrong direction, on the wrong side of the street, like literally, but nevertheless, we’re off to The Future.
*One time I called a late 30’s tech bro a tech bro and he got all pissed off, saying how he has kids in the SFUSD and so ergo, he couldn’t be a tech bro. But he works at Box! So I’m still thinking he’s a tech bro. I don’t think there’s an age cut-off…
It looks like this. Dozens of people disgorged from the outbound #5’s to start walking up Alamo Ridge oh well:
A mess of buses start got backed up on McAllister, inbound and outbound:
One of the arm thingees was broken on the stalled northbound #22 Fillmore. There was no fixing it without a lot of help from extra MUNI personnel. I thought that these buses could limp forward a bit to get out of the way, but that wasn’t an option here, apparently.
Anyway, the electrified #5 Rapids all got stuck, but look, here comes a regular old #5 Fulton diesel that had diverted on Fulton for a few blocks only to pop onto McAllister via Steiner. The operator went “beep beep” and a bunch of walkers happily clambered aboard.
So I guess this is a rare happy story involving MUNI…
It’s hard to tell these days, in the 94117.
Like at first, back in 2012, I thought Lyft was just a bunch of hipsters with giant pink mustaches on their cars.
So who knows what this guy is up to…
Look, it’s Twizy! In red these days:
