     SFGate in a nutshell: Another day, another 60-odd morons griping about how ‘dangerous’ the SFPark app is because they still cannot wrap their brains around a probability distribution or, much less, finding a temporary place to pull over and use the iPhone app if necessary. It’s sad. Really, it is.

    The biggest miss by them is that SFPark isn’t about the app, it is about pricing parking in such a way that one space is nearly always available. This eliminates the need for an app and the need to circle for parking. If they do happen to look at the app and an area is all red, they should be looking forward to the upward price adjustment to provide turnover and hence a parking space.

     Just looking at sfpark online and the FiDi is pretty red (obviously it’s a work day). But then digging deeper, it has a lot of the red (very low availability) blocks also being “no charge”. Are there really whole blocks of the FiDi that aren’t charging for onstreet parking?

  • Kudos to John Murphy, Scott Wiener and Sean Elsbernd for getting the weekend bullets started.

  • Yes, definitely kudos–thank you, thank you!  Next step, get weekend ridership up by offering discount family passes so people will take the train to the city instead of the minivan.

  • mikesonn

    Karen, that is HUGE. There needs to be a family pass of some sort.

    Also, I would like to see a little bit better hours on the bullets (or add two in each direction, one earlier and one later).

    Thank you! Caltrain will listen, but you helped the ridership speak loud enough for them to hear.
