    Muni really needs an app for people to tell it that it’s too slow and the headways are too long and unreliable? (As evidence for this, I submit the fact that I just randomly looked, and at this very moment at the peak of rush hour, there are zero inbound trains in the subway between Castro and Embarcadero.)

    The redesign of the Castro plaza moves the main entrance of the subway station half a block west towards Collingwood. This is a terrible idea because almost all of the neighborhood destinations are east of the station – Castro St itself, the businesses on Market east of Castro, Jane Warner Plaza, and of course the Muni bus stops for the 24 and 35. The design makes the vast majority of passengers walk an extra block, twice a day every day, for no good reason, and is the consequences of redesigning a transit facility without giving any consideration to transit utility.

  • Well, “need” is pretty strong, but at least this gives them way to collect data about what is most annoying to the people who hear about it, have smartphones, time and inclination to complain. Surely a diverse group of contestants.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I just sent a note to the SFMTA Board suggesting that access to transit be made a higher priority, or really one at all, when designing a transit station.

  • And no outbound trains last night between Embarcadero and West Portal around 7:15. No announcements made in the station. Nothing. Even the electronics signs outside of the station were wrong, as usual.
