  • Yes, the state raided Muni, and other transit agencies, but I also don’t remember hearing any uproar from Ford or any other transit official. TEP could have been great but it was pretty much used to only justify cuts and there never seemed to any intention to bring about the added service to offset those cuts.

    Ford fell flat. No way to sugar coat it.

    Could anyone tell me if the TEP plan to eliminate some bus stops has gone forward? Was riding the #1 today and it stopped every block going downhill on Sacramento Street. That doesn’t make sense to me, because it’s pretty easy to walk a couple blocks downhill, unlike the steep uphill parts. There’s even one block, between Polk and Van Ness where the bus stops twice. Anyway, I thought TEP was to be applied to major lines first, and the #1 seems pretty major to me.
