San Francisco Really Really Wants to Tell Tourists How to Get to the Golden Gate Bridge – Signs Popping Up All Over

Friday, April 20th, 2012

I’ll tell you, the first time I saw one of these signs, I thought our local rich, white, old, crybaby, NIMBY homeowners had gotten together to create their own sign to direct drivers the hell away from the ‘hood.

But now I don’t know.

Why Don’t We Just Get Rid of the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District? That Useless Board, ‘N Everything

Friday, January 14th, 2011

And then just throw the GGB into the BATA along with all the others where it belongs?

That way, we wouldn’t have to put up with the useless GGB District’s unconstitutional, crazy-ass policies or listen to them insult Colorado.

Check it:

“…[t]oll collectors are the bridge’s ambassadors to the motorists who use it and firing them could cost the district its public face, some directors argued.”

Why does the district need “a public face?” I mean, does the Bay Bridge need its own district? And who elected these directors? Why do some of them live hundreds of miles away?

Why do we need the district in the first place?

Friday, October 16th, 2009

Pretty much. There are more bikes than cars on this stretch of one-way road to the Point Bonita Light House and beyond in the Marin Headlands.

The catch is that you have to ride your bike all the way up the two-way part from where the road starts near the North Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Tonight: Public Information Meeting for Doyle Drive, the Southern Approach to the GGB

Thursday, July 23rd, 2009

Can you see the photo illustration below? That’s the future of Doyle Drive, whether you like it or not!

Parts of it are going underground soon, courtesy of Barack Obama stimulus money and your San Francisco County Transportation Authority, and a few others. Get all the deets of this Big Dig tonight, July 23, 2009 at Fort Mason – 6:00 PM open house, 6:30 PM presentation.

Can you see Doyle Drive in the background? That’s the way it looks today, all concrete and clay, and general decay.
