Here It Is: The Infamous Line of Double-Parked Cars in Front of Rainbow Grocery – How Do We Solve This Longstanding Problem?Thursday, December 18th, 2014
I don’t know, but SFGov is powerless, it appears.
And here’s how things look in 2014 – nothing’s changed:
Absurd MUNI 21 Hayes Bus Stop Situation (7 Stops for 6 Short Blocks) is Now Slightly Less Absurd – Thx SFMTA, SrslyWednesday, December 10th, 2014
Well here’s the official notice, seen in the Western Addition just north of the Panhandle and, I might add, just after election time:

Mind you, these aren’t big big city blocks the likes of which you’ll find in SoMA or out in the Avenues. These are small blocks chock-a-block full of bus stops. Check it, and remember that Ashbury used to have stops as well.
So hurrah for the SFMTA.
$2.99 per Gallon Gasoline has Come to SF – And $1.99 Gas in the Rest of ‘Merica – SFMTA’s Reason to Drive?Monday, December 1st, 2014
How much is a gallon of gasoline at the Fell Street ARCO station right now? $2.99
And how about the rest of America? Well, some places are at $1.99 and there are more coming soon.
Hey, remember when the SFMTA used to talk about how people should take MUNI because a one-way fare was less than a gallon of gas? I do. Not too forward-looking, huh?
And remember this ad campaign, to teach stupid car drivers about how gasoline actually costs money?
The SFMTA has stated that increasing gasoline prices are a reason to take MUNI, so, conversely, would falling gasoline prices be a reason to NOT take MUNI?
Think on that.
IMO, the SFMTA needs to deal with its numerous problems honestly.
IMO, the SFMTA isn’t even coming close to doing this.
IMO, the SFMTA isn’t even close to offering, in its words, EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION CHOICES.
IMO, MUNI’s service is worse than a quarter-century ago, despite the dramatic growth in its budget and its fare prices.
So, real gas prices are historically low and the SFMTA’s prices are historically high.
An SFMTA Fantasy for Van Ness – Check Out This Illustration – IRL, Route 101 Will be Filled with Cars, Bumper to BumperThursday, November 20th, 2014
Is this a joke?
This is a joke, right?
School buses in San Francisco? Are we going to have yet another SFUSD consent decree and be busing kids around even more? Actually, SFMTA, the trend is to have less busing and also lots of kids ride on SFMTA buses, as you well know, SFMTA. So why would you show a Van Ness with more school buses than cars?
And also, the number of buses on Van Ness will be greater than the number of people waiting for buses on Van Ness?
What are you smoking, SFMTA?
Sometimes I don’t know.
The Beautiful Overhead Wires of the Inner Sunset – Wires are Energy, Communication, Transportation – Wires Are LifeMonday, November 10th, 2014
What do you see here? It’s a Rorschach test deal:

There are some millionaires out there who think that we should take tax money, mostly from non-millionaires of course, and use it to get rid of all these cables and wires and whatnot and replace them with a more expensive approach.
I cry foul.
