Frisco’s Most Windswept Bus Stop – Less a Shelter Than a Sine Wave-Based, Cantilevered Roof

Monday, March 26th, 2018

IDK, what’s the roof supposed to be, p-waves from the Big One what’s going to come and kill some of us some day?

IDK but I think so.

Ooh, how, how … practical?

Most of the time, the wind comes from the west here, and this is an east-west street, oh well.

Les mise en scene:

A challenging location, needless to say…

Have I been here? I forget, but maybe three or four times? Anyway, it’s gotta be better than the now shut down Lucky Penny, that’s all I know…

Disobedient WIFE

You see, ’cause you gotta have a bike to go on this side, no jogging allowed, but it’s much easier to jog with the bikes than all the other joggers and tourists clogging up the East Side

Enforcement is lax on the West Side, so bring it on with your skateboards, large dogs and whathaveyou – it’s sort of the honor system here.

An Uber / Lyft Prius Hits a Pedestrian and Somehow Winds Up on the Shoulder of Inbound I-80 Near Pinole? – And Is This a Private Investigator?

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

As seen Friday afternoon, a few klicks southwest of Pinole:

The Prius on the left has UBER and Lyft trade dress. It appears to have hit somebody at speed.

The very similar Toyota Prius Hybrid on the right could be a fellow TNC driver, or an accident investigator the kind of which taxi companies send to accident scenes sometimes.

What happened here is a mystery to me.

You’re Supposed to Call 311 on Corporate Shuttle Buses, But the Companies Would Prefer You To Call New “How’s My Driving” Numbers

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

You can barely see the telephone icon on the blue SFMTA sticker – it’s right next to the “311” you’re supposed to dial if you’re a “vigilante” who’s seen some improper bus driving behavior. But OTOH, it’s easy to see the How’s My Driving? sticker, so one imagines that 311 would get fewer complaint calls now?

The companies certainly don’t want to end up like Bauer’s, with all those 311 calls, that’s for sure

SF Paratransit Vans Now [DO NOT] Have the Name of the Driver on the Side, As If They Were Fighter Jets?

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

[UPDATE: Hoo boy, I’ve just discovered the red circles on the sides of these vans are to honor those “who helped make paratransit possible” – see Comments. My bad. But seriously, I thought regular drivers had their names stamped on the side to give them more pride in work, to encourage them to drive and park more safely. (Of course, I still think that’s a good idea, even if the drivers wouldn’t like it…)]

Well, this kind of thing should be mandatory for Toyota Prius drivers:

And Interim Mayor Ed Lee’s Chevy Volt should have this too, the better to spot when it’s double parked.

If I were a driver, I’d ask for a radio call sign like Maverick, Goose, or Jester…
