    Wonderful messaging from Scion! Cyclists are just “obstacles” to quickly speed around.

    Van Ness BRT in 2018? Is there any city in America where projects like this take longer to realize than in ossified San Francisco?

  • Does the 2nd Ave subway project in NYC count? Granted, it’s a lot more complex than making a bus-only lane, but they’ve been trying to get it built since 1929.

    Caltrain electrification. It was proposed in early 1980s and is not going to get done until almost the end of this decade. In that 40 years, many rail systems (like VTA and BART) have been built and greatly expanded.

    Caltrain electrification would be useful, unlike the VTA light rail and more useful than the BART extension, yet the VTA LR and BART extension happened. Par for the course.
