    It’s a shame that Oakland is allowing that Broadway project to have 1:1 parking. It effectively ensures that bus service on Broadway will never be any good.

    The East Bay is much more dependent on private vehicles than SF. Every person I know from the East Bay insists on driving everywhere, even to SF. Then when they show up an hour late they complain about the traffic, like it’s not always like that.
    Point being, you’re in Kansas once you cross the Bay. The same rules don’t apply.

    The area in question has a majority-transit mode share for trips to work, higher than most parts of SF.

    “Easy Bay” is a huge area that stretches for 100 miles. People who profess to be from there probably aren’t from Oakland because people from Oakland don’t say they are “from the East Bay”.

    “Update on Taraval Boarding Islands”

    I hate to say “we told you so,” but actually, it’s kind of fun. What’s not so fun is a year+ delay to obviously necessary safety projects while we tried something that was obviously not not going to work.
