    Seems like everyone want to blame the tourist. Without giving a thought to local riders.

    I ride a tandem bicycle across quite often. The tourist annoy me, but the local riders scare me. Prospects of having someone run into me going 20+ is not pleasant.

  • How did Caltrain get into such a mess?? Did I miss something?

  • Re: SFCTA Study Released on Geary Boulevard BRT
    Does anyone know why they estimate that surface light rail would cost more than 10 times as much as BRT?
    The general rule I have heard is that light rail cost somewhat more than twice as much as BRT.
