  • Is anyone lobbying the Board of Sups (or the Mayor, though that is a joke) about getting some SFMTA relief in the form of raised parking rates? The sad thing is that the fast pass price will never go back down. And with Prince Newsom and Fat Cat Ford in charge, we’ll never see significant improvements.

    People on the street are pissed about the new $70 fast pass. 6 months ago it was $45 for the same service. That’s an extra $300 a year to take BART into downtown from some of the poorer neighbrohoods in the southeast section of the city. That’s an absolute scandal if you ask me.
