    Total ridership yesterday on Caltrain? About 88,000.

    “SF rides more transit than any other California city” Not exactly startling news–this has been true ever since the horsecar days.

    Yeah, I’m not sure where SFGate got their ‘9,600 average/22,000 yesterday’ numbers from.

  • mikesonn

    SF is going to take out a quarter-billion dollar loan to repave the streets? Will the bond even be paid off before they need to be paved again?

    At least people are driving lighter cars now, so the rate of pavement decay is slower.
