    Caltrain’s woes got a link, but we’re not going to mention the N’s meltdown yesterday during the morning commute? I’m all for promoting transit, but we have to acknowledge when our transit systems fail (all too frequently around here) and hold the responsible agencies accountable.

  • Can only imagine all the fun we will experience when the TP Tunnel shuts down for 23 weekends later this year to replace rails…followed by the L-Taraval surface rail replacement project. My, my, my. BTW-after 6+ months of evening closures of the MUNI underground the new displays still aren’t functional nor do I have cell phone service.

    Add the 12 Folsom-Pacific to the omerta pile. On Monday evening (18 April), there was a service gap from about 1720 to 1825 southbound to 24th+Mission. The NextMuni box in the shelter at Sixth+Harrison kept on showing junk ETAs. The #12 that finally showed up was a stealth bus – no ETA for it.

    1) The #12 runs at twenty minute intervals supposedly. So the service gap above implies three (3 !) missed runs.

    2) When are the bozos at SFMuni / NextMuni going to use the shelter boxes to advise people to use parallel service (the Bryant St. bus was running and it would have connected to a second seat at 24th Street) for these blot gaps ? They occur on the Level-20 (a lot !) and Level-12 (rare, but I’ve seen one on the #28) routes and it shows how rigid the dispatchers are by the absence of a fill-in bus at the thirty (30) minute mark.

  • And when one-sided displays must be used, point them so someone walking with traffic can see the time, rather than the opposite.
