As seen from Sansome:
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?
Here’s the pitch..
…and here’s the story, from a couple years back.
You cannot monetize public assets for individual company gain. Just because an app can be built, doesn’t mean it should be.
I’m a Co-Founder and CEO of a San Francisco based startup called CARMAnation (www.carmanation.com). We look to help solve parking issues via the true intentions of the sharing economy – working with the community to benefit the community. Our users share their PRIVATE available parking spots with one another.
Having tech startups trying to solve the parking problems with their own unique approach means there is a need to disrupt the industry. Technology is a wonderful thing, it can solve/simplify a lot of problems, but it has to be done right, otherwise “Monkey Parking” is what happens.”
I wonder how they’re doing.
How would you water this wobbly putting green high up near Turtle Hill / Grand View Park? Do you wait for the rain of Yosemite to accumulate and then make its way through hundreds of miles of the Hetch Hetchy Aqueduct to get to Frisco and then have somebody pump it up to your house so that you can waste “America’s Best Drinking Water” for your own suburban-style glorification?
I think that’s the system, man.
But brown is the new green, man.
Here it is, your Bunker Road Tunnel* to Rodeo Beach and beyond.
The driver of this old Datsun(!) pickup truck seemed to be giving this cyclist a little bit of room, but then a shout came out…
…from this guy going the other way. So whoops, the Datsun driver moves a yard or two to the right. Thusly:
Bikes have dedicated lanes in this tunnel but cars don’t. Does that mean that bikes don’t have to wait up to five minutes for a green light the way cars have to? I know not. The surfer dudes in the 4WD pickup could not possibly look more like Marin Locals, like Regulars on this stretch of road, but the driver was surprised to see a cyclist going the other way? Now because it’s a tunnel, shouting works, but what if dudes had had the radio on and couldn’t hear? There could have been an accident.
A single-lane tunnel carries Bunker Road from the Rodeo Valley to U.S. 101. Built in 1918, this tunnel is known as Baker-Berry Tunnel but also known as the Bunker Road Tunnel or the Five Minute Tunnel. A date stamp on the western entrance to the Baker-Barry Tunnel lists 1994, which may have been the year the tunnel was retrofitted for earthquake protection or reconstructed for other reasons. Additional work was completed in 2013 to allow for wider approaches for bicyclists. A traffic signal governs the flow of traffic into the tunnel, since only one direction may proceed at a time.
*Some mock the Yelp for rating a tunnel:
“Solid four-star tunnel… Screw you, Yelp.”
“What can I say, it’s a hole in the ground..lol”
Hey look – it’s the streetcar what’s named Desire:
Or at least it’s somebody’s view of what big city living should look like.
Lover I’m off the streets
Gonna go where the bright lights
And the big city meet
With a red guitar, on fire
And best of all, if we’re looking at the History of Forest Hill, and I think we are, there’s not any pesky Chinese laundryman playing basketball on his roof across the street…
Here you go:
The Port of Oakland showed respect for the SF City Limits – can you see how the landfill project in the upper right ends abruptly? That’s the border. But the US military just didn’t care and it kept filling until it was satisfied. (You can see how the SF part looks different – it’s a wetter / greener area.)
Ans here’s another way of saying it – see our little homeslice?
Anyway, lots of people still don’t believe me. But you do, right, Gentle Reader?
