The range of dese boids has increased a lot since I first saw them on the Filbert Steps some 11 years ago:
Speaking of which, they still hang out there, but they aren’t as approachable as back in the day:
Tell the Truth 2016 visits Frisco in a 15-passenger van:
I’m thinking the CCC should prolly take their name off of their surplus vans…
As seen on Bay. Ouch:
Anyway, three drivers were loitering in the lot, just waiting for a chance to take their turn to spend $45.
Of course you could park there all day long for the same amount, but the person I spoke with was there for less than two hours. I myself parked on neighboring Francisco for free, but I didn’t mention that as the $45 was long gone by then. So I just said, “Yep, Frisco is pricey.”
Or you can line up for the F Market, but at the nearby stop operators weren’t even stopping.
Or you can walk.
Here’s the sign:
And here’s the program.
And here’s what Yelp has to say.
I didn’t know about this deal- now I know why people are lining up to get into the Golden Gateway Garage before it opens on Saturday mornings.
Seems like a good deal for those who want to while away the hours in C-Town on a Saturday…
As seen on JFK:
And in the city it’s a pity cos we just can’t hide
Tinted windows don’t mean nothin’, they know who’s inside
Well, not really. But it’s one of our Frisco Park Rangers anyway.
This is a very Frisco kind of sign:
The scam of collecting parking fees that you shouldn’t has been going on for a while now.
Even our local government fails for this one sometimes, like the time a City Hall worker paid $100 so a bus could park near Broadway and Embarcadero for a mayoral news conference, oh well.
Remember, “DO NOT PAY THIS MAN!!!”
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.
