    I am happy that the 14 and 49 have returned to Mission St. It’s so much more colorful and lively and closer to where I want to go. However, it does seem that the bus is slower. Muni should go back to the Van Ness stop spacing (every 2 blocks). The other problem is the constant parking turnover, and right-turns preventing Muni from moving. I know in the Muni Rapid TEP, they’re considering creating special right-turn pockets and giving one lane to Muni. It really needs to happen.

    A good thing about the Mission St change is that they’ve now installed 2 shelters on each side at the 24th stop. That’s a step in the right direction. I look at the new platforms and Church and Duboce that are so long and have just one skimpy shelter without any seats and I feel like Muni doesn’t really respect its riders. The fact that they haven’t even designed a larger shelter (so that they don’t have to put 2) is another indication. But the change at Mission and 24th is a step in the right direction.

    Is there a reason they didn’t also install bus bulbs at 20th & Mission during the work? You’d think it should just be a standard policy to put in a bulb at any rapid network stops that don’t already have one whenever repaving is done.

    I call BS on helmet-pushing killing cycling. Please see: Seattle, Washington and Vancouver British Columbia.
