Re: Cable Cars
I’ve been the cable cars maybe two or three times, and I think I was only checked once – I was really surprised that they would ever not check.
“John Haley, Muni’s transit director, said the agency will soon deploy fare inspectors to make sure cable car riders are paying up.”
Wait a minute, cable cars carry 68 people max, and they are all already staffed by two MTA employees, a conductor on every vehicle in addition to the gripman. Now Muni thinks they need to deploy fare inspectors on cable cars to get people to pay, rather than using them on buses and LRVs?
More great use of limited resources, Muni!
“Thank you Mayor Lee for realizing that rescinding Sunday meters was wrongheaded. It was not responsible fiscally. Sunday meters were introduced collaboratively and rescinded unilaterally. We are very happy you recognize the error.”
