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…

Get “Protection, Health AND Safety” from Freedom Hygiene Inc?” – Oh, So That’s What They Mean – Mmmm

I’ve never thought about this:

And I’m no longer curious, is what I’m saying.

Closing with this bit of hard-sell: “RESTROOMS DON’T LIE”

“What the Company provides in the restroom is evidence of how they care about their employees. Let’s face it, in business the restroom isn’t considered a profit center. Because the restroom isn’t a profit center it serves as a reliable measure of how much a company cares about its employees and visitors. Restrooms don’t lie. When someone cares it shows…”

It’s Come To This: Privatized School Buses – KIDZJET – As Seen Double Parking on Fell Street

Friday, February 26th, 2016

You’d think a transportation company called kidsJET would use actual jets, but here’s what the fleet looks like:

$280 per month per kid? Oh. Uber or Lyft or Shuddle might be cheaper, non?

I have notes.

Welcome to San Francisco. So like you can’t double-park on Fell Street in the Western Addition, right? I mean, it’s like our substitute Freeway To The West, right? What you can do is go around the block. Sorry.

Also, one of the reasons why CBS made this…

60 Minutes II 15-Passenger Van rollover report

…is due to some vans having too much rear overhang.. Your comic here shows the half-assed Chrysler / Ford approach that increased rollover risk.

I don’t think you can market safety with this style of van. Sorry. If anybody is still operating this kind of van, they should take out the last row and not put anything else there – just leave it empty is what I’m saying…

Anyway, I’ve never seen this company before.

I Know What CSI Means, But How About CCSI?

Here’s What It Looks Like When the Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) Ventures Out to the End of Hayes Street – Super Bowl 50-Related?

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

I’m sure the HOT ppl come out here “all the time,” out here west of Masonic and north of the Panhandle, but I never really see them, certainly not in a distinctive vehicle like this:

I’ll tell you, the 21 Hayes was working just fine over the weekend, which just happened to be the weekend opening time of Super Bowl City. That means that you’d see empty or emptyish 21 Hayeses on empty streets like at 6:30 AM. And you’d see two buses together as well, and this is important, they’d be heading in OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS and not bunched up tailgating each other. That’s the key, MUNI.

Anyway, if MUNI spends all sorts of time and attention and (our) money to focus on one weekend, it can operate a decent bus line for a handful of ppl early in the AM – that’s the lesson I’m learning from over the past weekend.

So that’s it, that’s about as close as I’m going to get to #SB50, now that the NFL ppl have hauled off their garish “50” ad from Alamo Square.

I’ll be on the lookout for more HOT vehicles on patrol, but I think it’ll be 2017 afore I see another one out here…
