    “Parking Jihad”? Did Rob Anderson start writing for the Chron?

  • That SFist article is all kinds of bs….the road is not enough, a shared path is not enough….what is enough?

    I would understand why other media are fixated on the irrelevant metric of schedule adherence. However, Streetsblog should know better. Even Muni is moving its focus to headway adherence for the rapid network (or as they call it now: bunching and gaps). And headway adherence has not improved at all.

    Having said that, it is very encouraging that SFMTA is making a real push for better metrics, computed more frequently:

    A break from the fantasy transit map: http://www.transitunlimited.org/Bay_Area_rail_map
    This is a completely reality based rail system map consisted of BART, Caltrain, and the local systems in SF and SJ. There are some key bus connections too so the gap isn’t really there as it might have seemed.
