    another day, another car crashing into an SF storefront:

    The communication from AC Transit about the new fare structure has been about as clear as mud. I don’t even see how it’s supposed to speed boarding. The people who pay cash now will continue to pay cash, and will still be paying $2.10, and therefore groping around in their bottomless baggage for the dime while blocking the door. Maybe, MAYBE the discount will incentivize people to get Clipper cards, but I doubt it.

    I still don’t understand whether the transbay fare counts toward the $5 day pass. For example, if I ride round trip on a transbay bus ($8.40 fare) do I ride local buses free the rest of the day?
