    Suggestion for SFMTA to reduce budget deficit: stop the Central Subway.

  • mikesonn

    Game on! Going to be a real interesting summer. I really hope the city gets serious about providing proper cycling infrastructure and funding Muni. Gas isn’t going to be getting cheaper any time soon.

    Tax on electric vehicles? I get the idea of making road users pay, but isn’t it the case that gas tax revenues generally aren’t directly tied to road expenditures, and that they’re not even close to being enough to pay for road infrastructure?

    Why punish people for being innovative and making a more environmental choice?
