Let’s see – he’s got the shirt and the visor and matching blue hair and blue beard. I think he just might be playing PG.
GO Catch all those Pocket Monsters!
A little closer and now it looks out of focus, non? The buildings in front and behind look to be in focus, but not the thing itself.
And here it is. (I swear this is in focus.)
Anyway, just like the real Goddess of Democracy, this thing was made in China, for better or worse.
Here’s the background and here’s what the first day of terminal operation looked like yesterday:
I didn’t see it in operation, but I did see a Nest* (wherever that is) Bus heading away from this area this AM so maybe this 116 feet will be a nest for Nest, and others. Who uses this terminal is a secret, kept by our incompetent SFMTA, for some reason.
I think all these pissed-off people would have needed the relevant city Supervisor to go to bat for them against the SFMTA. I suppose that didn’t happen.
(I’ll tell you, one block away on Hayes, there’s a bus stop for the #21 what’s nine (9) seconds away from another bus stop for the same line. Our weak-willed SFMTA wanted to get rid of one of the stops but a while back but a local bidness owner hired on craigslist to get a “grass-roots” campaign going to sway our swayable Supervisor London Breed. So that’s democracy in action, or not, depending on how you look at it.)
Anyway, the signs say that all this will expire on May 27th, 2016, so we’ll just have to wait and see what the SFMTA wants to do next. Perhaps they’ll install permanent signs soon, IDK…
*Yeah, I need me an expensive Nest thermostat for my 100 year old radiators – I’m sure that would work out real good.
[UPDATE: Katie Dowd of the San Francisco Chronicle / SFGate weighs in here. And here’s Jacquelyn Quinones of KRON-TV. And KCRA-TV of Sacto (or Sac, or Sactown – the list for Sacramento goes on) weighs in as well.]
And yet, here comes City Target West. at Geary and Masonic on the west si-iiide:
I dare you, Gentle Reader, to purchase this SAN FRAN shirt and walk about town.
“Balderdash,” Caen wrote. “The toughest guys on the old S.F. waterfront, neither rubes nor tourists, called it Frisco, and no effete journalist would have tried to correct them.”
Frisco, on a dreaded sunny day
I don’t know how the SFMTA’s big meeting on March 18th, 2016 ended up, but this was the scene aforehand, on Fell near Masonic:
There were multiple three-page flyers everywhere:
What the Facebook Teamsters wanted last year was their own terminal in the 94117, so they wouldn’t have to sit around idling, and I’m srsly, in the slow lane of outbound/southbound Masonic (betwixt Fell and Oak, you know, the one that MUNI buses use all the time) OR in the MUNI stop at Hayes and Masonic (as they’ve been doing every working day, including this morning at 6:43 AM). It looks like they’re getting what they want. Enough space for two buses.
And I call it a terminal since there’s now nothing to prevent the Teamsters from staging in their own dedicated bus stop, AFAICS…
