  • Regarding the car sharing spaces,

    Perhaps what we need here is a registry of the businesses that only want customers arriving by privately owned cars.

    If small businesses – like 25th & Clement produce featured in the new KTVU puff-piece – are going to be so hurt and potentially driven out of businesses by customers who arriving on foot, bike, bus, train or car-share, then something should really be done to make sure those types of customers aren’t bogging them down from helping car-owning customers.
