Before Bikini Atoll:
And now live video…
It’s like the Mammoth Car from Speed Racer, non?
Anyway, that one above, #7201, was just the prototype. But this one here, #7215 is the real deal, spotted last week undergoing sea trials on Mission in SoMA. Soon it will be your new 30-X Marina “(Orient) Express,” the better to do battle with Chariot’s Chestnut Bullet:
Get all the deets from Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez
(And let me say, speaking a Bro myself, I apologize to Joe on behalf of Bros everywhere for all the time he had to spend yesterday on the SFBARF crew. Imagine if renters banded together to get property owners to speak out for rent control or something – that would be pretty bizarre as well.)
But hey, look at this monster – it doesn’t even come close to fitting into the frame:
Articulated, as most monsters are:
Bye bye Monster Bus – see you in my nightmares:
Actually, I approve of these gentle giants, these whale sharks of the transit world. Now it’s a shame that literally nothing can be done about rejiggering lanes to get 30’s through Stockton Street, but there was/is a corrupt bargain having to do with the less-than-useless Central Subway what prevents that. Oh well.
It’s over 100 feet wide (and some people wanted it wider. In fact the Chief Architect herself says it’s too wide, but oh well.)
Let’s see here, a stalled lane of traffic next to another stalled lane of traffic next to one of three useless medians next to an unused lane next to a lane so rich white people can park their cars. And then repeat on the other side and then pat yourself on the back for a job well done:
(Most “new ideas” are bad ideas, of course.)

Looks as if we got our weekly Tuesday Noon Siren Test in early when some of San Francisco’s emergency sirens went off today at 3:45PM to … mark the end of Sunday Streets Chinatown?
Take a look:
“The siren signified the end of Sunday Streets this week in Chinatown. We apologize for any concern.”
So more than just the one siren went off and that was the mistake?
Why should our City Family be horsing around with the emergency sirens in the first place?
So we should call them San Francisco’s Emergency/End of Sunday Streets sirens?
Anyway, it sounded like this:
“A siren from San Francisco’s Outdoor Public Warning System sounded at about 3:45 p.m. Sunday, but a City Twitter account stated that the siren was activated accidentally.”
And here comes Johnny-come-lately AlertSF.org:
“The sirens were activated citywide inadvertently this afternoon. There is no emergency in San Francisco.
