I Know What CSI Means, But How About CCSI?

A new acronym is called for here, IMO

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…

Let’s See Here: A Chariot Private Shuttle Van Running Through Golden Gate Park on a National Holiday?

Friday, November 13th, 2015

Hey, are San Francisco taxicabs somewhat restricted* in Golden Gate Park? Yes, yes they are. But here comes a Chariot:

Does Chariot take people to work in the Financh on Veterans Day? IDK. Does Chariot run charters on big holidays? Perhaps. Or maybe the driver is repositioning or traveling for maintenance. Or maybe there’s some other reason it makes sense for this driver to “cut-through” the park.

Anyway, I was surprised to see a Chariot in GGP on a national holiday…

*I think cabbies** aren’t supposed to cruise the park for pick-ups, I think that’s the rule.

**Cabbies cabbies cabbies – own it, cabbies. This term isn’t offensive at all, to most.

This Double-Parked Moving Van is a Preview of the Coming “Improved” Masonic Avenue During Rush Hour

Monday, August 24th, 2015

There are proper ways of moving furniture into and out of a place on Masonic, but this method…

…isn’t one of them. Dudes were here for a good long time on a relatively quiet Saturday afternoon.

Of course there are pros and cons to the coming changes to Masonic, but one thing’s for sure – the backups are going to be epic.
