Here’s Your New 400 Block of 11th Street, for Better or Worse, from Our SFMTA

Tuesday, November 29th, 2016

Here’s what this one small block of 11th Street looks like now, after the SFMTA started changing things.

I can’t say I understand what the SFMTA’s doing here.

I suppose a lot of parking spaces will be sacrificed at the altar of the 9 San Bruno “Rapid” [LIMITED] Project, a joint from the SFMTA’s MUNI Great Leap Forward, Comrades.

And looking south from Folsom:

The reply to the thoughtless, repeated use of the novel term “Vision Zero” is this.

Do we really want “comfortable,” confident pedestrians? Really?

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

Market in the Financh is down to just one lane, in parts, these days, right? So you can’t just stop and wait for your fare to come down an elevator, right? Frisco aint Tracy, CA, right?

After getting yelled out by Bike To Work Day, Uber driver from the South Bay scooched on over enough to let more people squeeze by.

It’s just not possible to legally pick riders up like this, sry.
