  • They really need pedestrian improvements where the panhandle meets Golden Gate park. Currently, the streets cut through the panhandle, which speeds up traffic and endangers pedestrians. They should eliminate those cut-through streets and keep cars on the ordinary streets outside of the panhandle, which would slow down traffic.

    This seems to be left out of the plan.

  • There are two streets that cut through the Panhandle–Masonic and Stanyan. Frankly the odds of either of these streets being closed to through traffic are zero.

    I am glad to see the panhandle get some attention. At the very least, could Park and Rec stop routinely irrigating the bike path during the middle of the day? It would be very much appreciated.

    Glad to see bike racks going into the Panhandle finally. Any chance they could use some of the money to restripe the yellow dividing line that runs the length of the north path? Yellow Arrows would also be helpful to keep people from walking into oncoming traffic.

  • “The Muni operator who rear-ended a train at the West Portal station in July 2009, injuring 47 people and costing The City nearly $5 million, had been suspended four times in the two years prior to the accident, including once for a similar incident that occurred at the same site.”

    So are we finally going to see some management at the MTA fired over this now?
