    For some time, the harshest critics of the SFMTA MUNI Forward campaign have been complaining that what people really wanted was more frequent service. That stop consolidation and painting transit lanes and managing parking demand were just a sideshow that was making it harder for the working stiffs who just want to get around by car.

    Well, the SFMTA is now increasing service in response to these demands. It will be interesting to see how these critics respond, but I’m not holding my breath that they will provide any positive feedback given that their primary motivation is to maintain their personal status quo of driving everywhere.
