    Now that we know pricing works for parking (as if it weren’t already obvious that it would work) can we please for the love of Pete have market pricing for bridge tolls? It’s very simple: raise the price of peak hour bridge crossing until the metering lights are off.

    And toll from the South!

    We’ve already got the North and East covered.

    What I’ve learned from the fare inspections is: DO NOT LET GO OF YOUR CARD. If your Clipper has to be scanned, have them do it with it in your hand. First Fare inspector had a malfunctioned scanner so he went on board the bus with my card, but did not permit me to board, to have his colleague scan it. Yeah… that went well when the bus took off.
