    I’m really missing those few months earlier this year when Stockton was auto-free.

    4 years! 4 f’ing years!

    Enough to make a guy say screw it and buy a car. Lord knows things won’t be better when (if ever) the CS is done.

    “Muni, driving people to drive.” You can have that slogan on the house, SFMTA.

    My wife said “screw it” and bought an electric bike. One less MUNI rider 😉

  • mikesonn

    Yeah, who am I kidding? I’d never buy a car. But I bike to Caltrain from North Beach, rain or shine; and my wife walks to BART. Neither of us have a MUNI monthly anymore, haven’t in years.

  • mikesonn

    Rough day for Muni, two T-line crashes and it’s not even noon.

  • Peter M

    It’s at least the third time there has been an accident involving the T at 3rd and 22nd. Quite an accomplishment since left turns aren’t allowed there.
