    The quickest transit improvement to the Fisherman’s Wharf area is to extend the 82X line. 82X used to go to that area but so was line 10. While the F line is a designated alternative, it is overcrowded due to shortage of vehicles, along with the fact that it doesn’t go to Caltrain.

  • Reporter in the last spot incorrectly says “pedestrian who is not in a _marked_ crosswalk must yield to vehicles”. She means _any_ crosswalk, marked or not.
