Here’s what things looked like on August 1, 2014 at a MUNI bus stop that just debuted as a new “commuter shuttle” stop:
I think MUNI meant to say MUNI/COMMUTER SHUTTLES instead of MUNI-COMMUTER SHUTTLES, but who knows.
Note that the small print advises those with Concerns or Complaints to
go to Hell call 311.
Here’s the place, on Hayes at Clayton:
Things were pretty sedate around here before the shuttle program began. (Yes, Hayes is a thoroughfare, as it has the 21 Hayes bus line but that bus doesn’t run as much as the nearby #5 Fulton just to the north or the lines on Haight just to the south.)
Anyway, some of the area NIMBYs are upset, so they started a direct mail campaign and they posted fliers about.
Like here on this rather dirty building, which lost some paint when the fliers came down cause the tape they used was extra strong oh well:
So that’s it – life here is pretty much the same as far as I can tell. I’ve jogged past these two stops, the inbound and the outbound right across the street from each other, four times now, during times when I know that there are hundreds of people milling about the 415 / 628 waiting for dozens of shuttles, and I haven’t seen nothing.
Perhaps the NIMBYs were wrong? Perhaps all good and bad points about life in the 94117 will remain unaffected?
