    $45/mo to $76/mo, still no night or Sunday metering, and $100/year RPPP makes one wonder about transit first?

    Also, if the monthly was still $45, I’d probably get one. But as it stands, the horrible reliability (especially when trying to make Caltrain) and the extra $30/month, I ride my bike whenever and wherever possible.

  • So, May 10th for the bridge? Given the district’s horrible track record I’ll refrain from believing that until they actually complete the work.

    And then they’ll re-close it for another project that could have easily been completed during the same time frame as the other two closures.

    Even at $76 a month, it will still take an hour to get downtown from the Sunset, right?

    From the article: “Ideally, the bridge district and conservancy hope to have the work completed by Bike to Work Day on May 10, Currie said.”

    Based on this comment I wouldn’t hold my breath, but at least the bridge district has that date on their calendar as a reference point.

  • Right, but they previously stated “Due to visitor improvements at the Golden Gate Bridge South End, Golden Gate Bridge West Sidewalk & Battery East Road will be closed from January 17, 2012 through April 1, 2012.” So at one point April 1 was a reference point.
